Transfer Credit

Transferring Credits to KU

The Office of the University Registrar (OUR) oversees and supports the undergraduate transfer evaluation process, which includes determining the acceptability and equivalency of courses, awarding credit by the University of Kansas, and maintaining the database of transfer course evaluations on CredTran.

Additionally, OUR provides accurate and timely information about undergraduate transfer policies and procedures to advisors and students.
