Understanding Your Transfer Credit Evaluation

The transfer credit evaluation is a document that shows how your completed coursework transfers to CALS to fulfill distribution requirements. The information on your report will be used to determine which degree program requirements you have met and which ones you still need to complete. You will receive transfer credit report updates each time we record new transfer course information on your official student record. 

Your transfer credit evaluation tells you... 

  • The name of the transfer course; 

  • The number of credits transferred for each course; 

  • Whether or not the course has been accepted for transfer; 

  • How your transfer courses fulfill CALS Distribution Requirements; 

  • Which CALS requirements you still need to complete before graduation.
