Note: The transfer of credit will occur after you have been admitted. If you do not provide syllabi and course descriptions when you apply for admission, then credit transfer will occur after you have enrolled. If credit cannot be determined before you arrive, it will be determined after you arrive, after presentation of official documentation.
Students seeking to transfer credits from other colleges or universities may view the KU CredTran site to see if credits from your institution have previously been evaluated. CredTran is a guide that shows how courses at some institutions have already been evaluated for transfer to KU. The KU CredTran website lists both US and international institutions.
Course work completed at an institution outside the United States will be considered for transfer credit at KU if:
- You took the course at an institution of higher education recognized as a university by the ministry of education in that country.
- You took the courses at an institution that is technical in nature and is recognized as equal to a university by the ministry of education in that country.
- You present all official records and documents representing course work completed.
- You arrive at KU prepared to explain and show evidence that course work included specific subject matter. You should present a catalog, syllabus, or other information that provides succinct descriptions of each course you have completed. Many courses may not be recognized as equal to courses offered or required at KU. Once you are on campus, the appropriate academic department may interview or test you to establish your knowledge of the subject.
- You can establish the number of weeks, number of days per week, and number of hours per day that were required to complete the course.
