Transfer Credit Equivalency Codes

Chairs of departments make initial evaluation of courses that are accepted through transfer credit. Accepted transfer credit must be identified for proper advising.

Evaluation of transfer courses falls under two categories:

  1. When the description of a transfer course matches a R-MC course the R-MC course becomes the equivalent course for purposes of advising and meeting collegiate and/or major and minor requirements. (Ex. A transfer course that is equivalent to HIST 211 would transfer in as HIST 211.)

    Or

  2. When the description of a transfer course does not match a R-MC course and the transfer course is an acceptable credit bearing course, the following number sequencing should be used:

    010      Courses that are accepted for elective credit only. Such courses cannot be applied towards collegiate requirements or major/minor requirements.

    020      Courses that are accepted to meet the collegiate requirements (AOKs) only.

    030      Courses that are accepted to meet the collegiate requirements and will apply to a major/minor*.

    040      Courses that apply only to the major/minor*.

     

* For courses counting on a major/minor, specify what area of the major/minor the course would satisfy. For majors or minors that have specific groups, identify the group and the corresponding number will be used. Example: If the transfer course is accepted to meet a requirement in Group III, the R-MC equivalent will be 033 or 043.
