Transfer Evaluation

Where do I send my transcripts?

Please have your final official transcripts sent directly from the other school to the CU Admissions Office. Be sure to ask for the transcripts to be sent after all grades, certificates and degrees have been posted.

It says I need a syllabus. What does that mean?

Our initial review of coursework is based on short course descriptions, which might not include enough information for us to make a decision about the course(s). The course syllabus gives far more detail about what you actually studied and what your learning outcomes were.

To submit your syllabus, take a self-addressed envelope and a copy of your course syllabus (from the term and instructor with which you took the course) to Woodbury 109. The syllabus should include a detailed course description, a list of topics covered in the course and a list of textbooks or readings. At Woodbury 109, you will fill out a cover sheet with your contact information and add a note explaining why you want the course reviewed (for example – the course did not transfer). When a final decision has been made, you will be notified by mail.

If you do not have your original course syllabus, you should be able to obtain one from the institution where you took the course.

I think this class should count for Core, but it’s in the “Electives” section of my degree audit. What can I do?

Our initial review of coursework is based on short course descriptions, which might not include enough information for us to award Core credit.

Please review the Core area descriptions.

If you believe you have taken a course that meets the philosophy and goals of a Core area, you can submit a Transfer Credit Appeal.

To submit an appeal, take a self-addressed envelope and a copy of your course syllabus to Woodbury 109. The syllabus should include a detailed course description, a list of topics covered in the course and a list of textbooks or readings. At Woodbury 109, you will fill out a cover sheet with your contact information and add a note explaining why you want the course reviewed and for which Core area. When a final decision has been made, you will be notified by mail.

 

I think my transfer course is an exact match of a CU course, but it doesn’t show that way in my degree audit. What can I do?

I turned in a syllabus, but I disagree with the decision. Is there anything I can do?

No, all decisions on Transfer Credit Appeals are final, since the process includes a high-level review.

I want to take a class at another institution next semester. How can I be sure it will transfer?

To ease the transfer pre-approval process, we have partnered with Transferology, an online college planning and transfer credit resource. This resource will allow you to look up any courses you are interested in taking, without the need for any forms or waiting on pre-approval. Create your Transferology account today to see what courses will transfer to CU-Boulder.

If the course(s) you wish to take is not on Transferology, then you may submit a Transfer Pre-Approval form.
