Understanding your transfer credit evaluation

Transfer Credit Evaluation

Transcripts are evaluated within 21 days of a students' acceptance to the University of Rhode Island. All new students accepted into the College of Arts & Sciences, and all new students who are Undeclared in their major, will have their transcripts evaluated by the Transfer Resource Center. *Please note that courses only with a grade of C or better will be considered for transfer.

A review of course content determines how courses are evaluated. All "college level courses" successfully completed at an accredited institution will be determined to meet requirements as either transferable credits, general education credits, or as elective credits.

Once the transcript is posted, we will mail you a welcome letter, along with your transfer credit report.

All other colleges at the University of Rhode Island are responsible for completing transfer credit evaluations for their majors. These include the College of Business, Engineering, Pharmacy, Human Science & Services, Environment Life Sciences, and Nursing. Please contact each college to determine the status of your transfer credit evaluation.
