Transferring Courses from Other Institutions

Transferring Courses from Other Institutions

If you’re thinking about taking a course at another institution, you need to make sure that it will transfer to Penn State.

Check the transfer evaluation guide to see if the course has already been evaluated. 

Check to see if a certain Penn State course has equivalency at another institution.

Course work from another institution that is not located on the transfer evaluation guide will need to be reviewed by faculty in the relevant academic discipline. If a student wishes to seek pre-approval of a transfer course, he or she should email course syllabi to preapproval@psu.edu. If not available electronically, please mail syllabi to the Undergraduate Admissions Office, 201 Shields Building, University Park, PA 16802. For more details on submitting syllabi electronically for pre-approval, view our transfer credit equivalencies information.
