TRANSFER COURSE EVALUATION GUIDE

Welcome!

Please choose one of the following options:

Identify a course at another institution and view the Penn State evaluation

Identify a Penn State course and search a specific institution where it is offered

Note to Current Students: Credits are transferred; grades are not. The credits transferred from another school do not affect a student’s grade-point average. Transfer credits are part of a student’s academic history and the college in which the student is enrolled will determine how transfer credits will be used to meet graduation requirements. All advanced placement or transfer credits placed on the Penn State transcript will count towards the total number of credits a student has accumulated. Please be advised that a student’s tuition will increase as soon as the Penn State transcript reflects 59.1 cumulative credits. This tuition increase will occur during the semester the credits are transferred.

Current Students Wishing to Take Summer Courses in China

In order for credits to transfer to Penn State the summer program must be part of the national education system in China.

If you take university courses in China, in order to be considered for transfer credit, you MUST arrange for a verification report of your university transcript with the China Academic Degree and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC). The report must be mailed directly to Undergraduate Admissions by the CDGDC, rather than by you or any third party. Any transcript not mailed by the CDGDC will not be considered for awarding transfer credits to Penn State.
