Will Your Credits Transfer?
The Cincinnati Center for Credit Evaluation evaluates how your credits translate to credit at the University of Cincinnati. They only evaluate your overall transfer credit. After you are admitted, the Cincinnati college which offers the program to which you are seeking admission will determine how accepted transfer credits are applied toward degree requirements.
For transfer credit to be granted, the institutions you have attended must be accredited by one of six regional accrediting agencies: The Higher Learning Commission (formerly North Central Association of Colleges and Schools), Middle States, North Central, New England, Northwest, Southern, or Western Associations of Colleges and Schools. You can check your school's accreditation online at www.chea.org.
Other considerations for your transfer credit:
- General education requirements such as math, English, history and so on, will usually transfer to a direct equivalent.
- You must have earned a D or better grade for credits to transfer, unless the course was part of a transfer module or a degree you have completed.
- Your GPA from other institutions does not transfer to Cincinnati. Your Cincinnati GPA is based only on coursework completed at the University of Cincinnati.
- Programs require at least 30 semester hours be earned at UC to meet UC's residency requirements. For specific information about all degree requirements for your degree, check individual program requirements.
- Students transferring from foreign universities must submit a course-by-course credit evaluation from a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). Complete details about international credit.
