Transfer Evaluation

The Office of the Registrar determines which credits are transferrable and evaluates that coursework based on previously established equivalencies. Email notification will then be sent to you and your major department(s). If applicable, additional notification will be sent to academic departments responsible for reviewing new courses that don't have established equivalencies. If any new equivalencies are identified, another email notification will be sent to you and your major department(s).

You can access your Transfer Equivalency Report at any time via URSA; instructions on how to do so can be found at http://www.unco.edu/regrec/PDF%20Forms/Transfer_Equivalency_Report%20_Student.pdf

Non-equivalent courses may be substituted for major, minor, licensure, or endorsement requirements at the discretion of the academic department responsible for the graduation requirement by submitting a Course Adjustment form to the Office of the Registrar.

If you are transferring from a Colorado Community College System institution, course equivalencies are listed on our Transfer Guide found at http://www.unco.edu/regrec/PDF%20Forms/TransferGuide.pdf.

Credits Accepted

  1. Course credit is accepted from regionally accredited institutions if courses are comparable to those at UNC.
  2. A maximum of 90 semester hours of transfer work from all sources may be applied towards a UNC degree.
  3. A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit is accepted for correspondence and extension courses including those from UNC.
  4. A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit is accepted for college-level courses taken under the auspices of the U.S. military services. Credit may be awarded to veterans of military service who have attended military service schools. This credit is evaluated by the Office of the Registrar according to guidelines of the American Council on Education.
  5. College work earned 10 years before the baccalaureate degree is to be granted may be applicable toward the UNC degree at the discretion of the applicant's intended major and minor programs.
  6. A student who has earned a liberal arts based Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college will receive a full waiver of the Liberal Arts Core requirements. In order to be considered a liberal arts based degree, transfer courses must meet the requirements of Areas 1-6 of the UNC Liberal Arts Core.  Certain UNC majors require specific and/or additional LAC credit.  These requirements are not waived by the AA, AS, or Bachelor’s Degree.
  7. Previous grade point averages are used for admission and scholarship purposes only and are not carried forward on the student's academic record at UNC. Transfer students begin a new grade point average.
  8. Approved courses taken at previous institutions with letter grades of “C-” or better are transferable.

Credits Not Accepted

  1. Credit is not given for courses from non-regionally accredited institutions.
  2. Credit is not given for courses in which grades of D, F, Incomplete, Unsatisfactory or No Report were earned.
  3. Credit is not given for vocational or remedial courses below college level.
  4. Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Associate of General Studies (AGS) degrees do not qualify to waive the UNC Liberal Arts Core Requirements, however, individual courses taken as part of these degrees will be evaluated for possible credit on a course-by-course basis.
