Transfer Credit

The college transcripts of admitted applicants are evaluated by advisors in the undergraduate colleges. Credit earned from accredited colleges and universities is generally transferable if a grade of C or better has been earned in the course and if The University of Tulsa offers a comparable course. Courses taken pass/fail are not transferable unless a grade of C or better can be documented.

Faculty policy determines which courses apply towards the degree requirements and which would be considered “overage” (or not applicable) in a chosen major. Transfer applicants are notified in writing by the advising office of the number of semester hours accepted in transfer and those hours that are applicable toward the anticipated degree program. The last 45 hours of the degree program must be completed in residence at The University of Tulsa, regardless of the number of transferable credits earned.

General transfer guidelines from Tulsa Community College are as follows:

Exceptions and policy on the transfer of collegiate requirements must be approved by the college dean. Credit is not granted for correspondence classes or experiential work. A maximum of 62 semester hours may be transferred from a two-year college. Upper division credit will not be granted for courses taken at two-year institutions.

While placement testing in languages and math may allow a transfer student to place in a higher level course, The University of Tulsa does not grant credit for CLEP testing. Transfer students who took Advanced Placement (AP) tests in high school and received qualifying scores should have AP test results sent to the Office of Registration and Records at the time of their enrollment.

Grades earned in courses accepted in transfer do not affect the student’s grade point average at The University of Tulsa.
