Transfer credit

Previously completed college-level course work will transfer to Ohio State if the course was taken at a regionally accredited institution, the course was non-remedial and a grade of C- above was earned. Grades of D or D+ may be accepted in specific circumstances.

Basic and general college-level course work successfully completed at post-secondary institutions holding national or professional accreditation recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) is also eligible for evaluation. Transfer credit may be awarded based on the nature, level, content and comparability of the course to university offerings.

While courses may be awarded undergraduate credit, the appropriate degree-granting college will determine its applicability to specific degree requirements.

For detailed information about transfer credit, including the Ohio State Transfer Credit Policy, please go to the Transfer Credit site. The policy is established within the tenets of The Ohio Articulation and Transfer Policy adopted by the Ohio Board of Regents in November of 1990.
