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 “D” 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 in a fully accredited four-year program at a college or university. Students earning baccalaureate degrees are required to complete at least 25 percent of the total credit hours required for the degree at the University of Louisville.  Students earning baccalaureate degrees are also required to complete 30 of their last 36 semester hours at the University of Louisville.
