Find out if your courses will transfer from another college or University in the United States or an international institution. Or, view program guides by SIU major for select Illinois and Regional Community Colleges.
After admissions to the University, students’ transfer credit is evaluated for acceptance toward University and University Core Curriculum (UCC) requirements. Courses, which are remedial, developmental or pre‐college, will not be accepted for transfer.
Credit accepted for transfer not applied to UCC requirements or to a specific degree program, will be considered general transfer credit (elective credit).
Transfer courses to be considered toward specific program requirements or departmental credit is determined by the department directing the program. Your point of contact for program requirements and transfer is your academic advisor.
Information on transferring courses from specific schools is available here. Schools not listed on the website will have their courses evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Articulation and acceptance of transfer credits can involve not only courses, but also proficiency exams, military service experience, and industry certifications and work experience in some programs.
