Transferring

Transfer Credit

Transfer credits are earned at another accredited college or university and accepted by Purdue. The University will accept transfer credit only for work done at those institutions fully approved by a regional accrediting association of secondary schools and colleges or those whose regional accreditation designation is A/V (Associate/Vocational-Technical) when agreements with academic departments exist which specify courses or blocks of credit that will transfer into specific Purdue University degree programs.

Purdue maintains a list of evaluated courses that are eligible for transfer credit.
