Course-by-course credential evaluation by one of three approved providers.
Admitted transfer students will receive an admissions letter that will include the estimated number of approved transfer credits. After you accept the university's offer of admission, you will receive an official Evaluation of Transfer Credit. This evaluation is usually preliminary in nature and could be subject to change.
You must send your final transcripts to University Admissions at the end of your current semester. A final evaluation of transfer credit will be prepared when your final transcripts are received.
*NOTE: A maximum of 64 credits may be transferred from community colleges or other two-year institutions in the U.S. or abroad, while a maximum of 90 credits may be transferred from a four-year institution or combination of two and four-year institutions in the U.S. or abroad. A student’s final 30 credits must be completed at TU as an enrolled student.
