Transfer Credits

The University of Evansville evaluates and may accept credit earned at other regionally accredited educational institutions.

  • Courses with a grade of D or lower and institutional exams will not be accepted for transfer credit.
  • No more than 60 semester hours of credit from a junior college or community college may be transferred to the University of Evansville except in cases where an articulation agreement has been established.
  • Each course is evaluated separately to determine if it can apply toward a UE degree and the University reserves the right to accept or reject courses for transfer credit.
  • At least 48 hours, including the last 15 hours and the majority if hours in the major, must be completed in residence to earn a baccalaureate degree from the University of Evansville, subject to the requirements of specific majors

University of Evansville students who plan to take courses at another institution and wish to transfer credit to apply toward a degree must have written approval on a transfer credit request form signed in advance by the student's academic advisor and the registrar. A maximum of three courses (or 10 semester hours) may be transferred from another institution once a student has matriculated at the University of Evansville. Failure to obtain prior approval may result in credits not transferring.

The three-course limit for transfer credit may not apply to students participating in an approved study abroad program not available through the University of Evansville. Approval for credit transfer must be obtained in writing from the department and registrar prior to participation in the program.

Please print a copy of the transfer credit request form, complete it and submit it to the Office of the Registrar located in Olmsted 106 before taking a class at another institution. Upon completion of the course, an official transcript must be requested from the transfer institution to be sent directly to:

Office of the Registrar
University of Evansville
1800 Lincoln Avenue
Evansville, IN 47722

Grades are not transferred, only credits are transferred. We do not post credit from other institutions unless the credit applies to a student's degree program.

Credit by Examination

The University of Evansville allows students to earn an unlimited number of hours of credit prior to entrance through the College Board Advanced Placement testing program, providing a grade of four or better in each examination has been achieved, and through the International Baccalaureate program, providing a grade of five or better in higher level subjects has been achieved.

Students may also obtain course credit by submitting the results of the College Entrance Examination Board's College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or by taking University of Evansville proficiency examinations administered by an academic department. The number of hours of credit that can be counted toward the total hours required for graduation through CLEP or departmental credit by examination, however, is limited to two courses.

Departmental examinations in specific courses are available to qualified students upon approval of the academic advisor and the chair and/or dean of the academic department in which the examination is to be taken. Credit by examination forms are available from the Office of the Registrar. A nonrefundable departmental examination fee will be charged (see tuition and fees section) by the Office of Student Accounts. Credit for the course will be granted provided the student passes the examination with a grade of C or better. No exam may be repeated if a grade lower than the equivalent of a C is earned. A grade of P is recorded on the transcript for credit earned by examination.

Students are not permitted to schedule departmental examinations in courses which have been audited, in courses in which unsatisfactory grades have been earned, in physical education activity courses or in courses which have been dropped with grades of W. No credit toward graduation is awarded retrospectively to lower level course work based solely upon satisfactory completion of more advanced course work in the same subject area except for academic sequence courses in foreign languages.
