Transfer Course Equivalencies

Undergraduate Transfer Admissions is responsible for transfer credit evaluation. Decisions are based on the best information existing at the time of evaluation; revisions to course equivalencies may occur as new information becomes available. No transfer credit evaluation is official until credits appear on the student's University of Connecticut transcript. You must visit this site often and consult with your academic advisor for final determination as to how transfer credit might apply to your degree program. In addition, regularly review the Transfer Credit Guidelines for all transfer credit policies.

In general, the University of Connecticut grants credit for courses that are:

  • Taken at regionally accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities;
  • Comparable in content and quality to courses offered at UConn;
  • Completed with a minimum grade of "C."

Please be advised that:

  • Online courses in laboratory sciences and foreign languages, including those offered in hybrid format, do not transfer;
  • A Prior Course Approval is required for mathematics courses offered online;
  • Pass/Fail grades will not be considered for credit;


  • Transfer credit is awarded in semester hours;
  • Grades from your previous institution(s) do not transfer;
  • Courses are considered either equivalent to courses at UConn (same department and number as in the UConn catalog) or generic (same department but with a 5-digit number assigned that begins with the number 9, as in 91000, 92000, etc.).
