Transferring to the University of Louisville
Students with fewer than 24 transferable semester hours are considered in a similar fashion as freshman students and must meet the admissions requirements for new freshmen and have a minimum college grade point average of 2.8. Students with 24 hours or more transferable semester hours must have a 2.8 college grade point average and at least B- grades in each of the following courses: Calculus I (MATH 205 or equivalent) and General Chemistry I (CHEM 201 or equivalent).
In addition to the minimum grade requirements for Calculus I and General Chemistry I, the Speed School of Engineering requires a minimum “C-” grade for any transferred course to be accepted as credit toward a degree. A transfer student must earn at least sixty semester hours applicable toward the baccalaureate degree at a fully accredited four-year program at a college or university. Thirty of the last thirty-six semester hours must be earned at the University of Louisville and at least 25% of the degree program hours must be earned at University of Louisville.
If you are interested in learning more about the requirements for admissions, please contact an admissions counselor.
Evaluation of Transfer Credit
The Office of Transfer Services evaluates transfer credit and academic units advise about courses needed for degree completion after the student has been admitted to the University of Louisville. Transfer work that is college-level, academic in nature and earned at appropriately accredited programs will be accepted and posted as credit earned (i.e., with no grade). The School of Engineering requires a minimum “C” grade for any transferred course to be accepted as credit toward a degree.
A transfer student must earn at least sixty (60) semester hours applicable toward the baccalaureate degree at a fully accredited four-year program at a college or university. Thirty of the last thirty-six semester hours must be earned at the University of Louisville.
