Study Abroad Transfer of Credit

Your host university/program should send transcripts directly to the Office of International Programs & Services and NOT the Registrar's Office. If your Transfer of Credits Form matches the courses listed on your transcript, the IPS Office will process your transcript within 1-2 weeks. However, if the Transfer of Credit form needs to be updated, it can take up to 6 weeks complete.

If you took any classes that were not listed on your original Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Form and you did not revise it while you were abroad, there will be a delay to get your credits posted to your Degree Audit Report. If this is the case, you must contact your Program Coordinator directly for further instructions. Your transcript cannot be processed without your Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Form being revised.
