Transferring Credit

Transfer Credit Policies

For complete information on Miami University’s transfer credit policies, consult the Miami University Bulletin and the Miami University Student Handbook.

Determining if your credits transfer

Course equivalency and program information can be found on Transferology.com to assist students in reviewing/previewing transfer credit information. Information on Advanced Placement (AP) / International Baccalaureate (IB) / College Level Examination Program (CLEP) are located in the Miami Bulletin in the Academic Planning section.

  • Courses taken prior to Fall 2009: Transfer credit is granted for college-level courses earned at a regionally accredited institution of higher education for which you receive a grade of a "C" or better.
  • Courses taken Fall 2009 or after: Transfer credit will be granted in which the grade reported was a D- or better from a regionally accredited Ohio institution.
  • Courses taken Fall 2010 or after: Transfer credit will be granted in which the grade reported was a D- or better from all regionally accredited institutions.

Grades do not transfer and do not affect your Miami GPA.

AP / IB / CLEP scores

AP, IB, and/or CLEP scores should be sent to the Office of the University Registrar for evaluation. For more information on sending scores, visit the websites below.

Transfer from Quarter Schools

Credits earned at a quarter school transfer to Miami at 2/3 the earned value:

  • 5.0 qtr hrs = 3.3 sem hrs
  • 4.0 qtr hrs = 2.6 sem hrs
  • 3.0 qtr hrs = 2.0 sem hrs
  • 2.0 qtr hrs = 1.3 sem hrs

Transfer from Semester Schools

Semester credit hours transferred are equivalent to those earned from the transferring school.

Transfer of Study Abroad Courses

Students who intend to study abroad on a non-Miami sponsored Program should consult with the Study Abroad Office to determine if transfer credit can be accepted and the required documentation is available.

Transcripts

An official transcript must be mailed from the transferring institution to the address below. You may also hand deliver your sealed official transcript to the One Stop for Student Success Services, located in the Campus Avenue Building. The transcript must remain in its sealed envelope.

Transferology

Transferology is an online tool that will help you view program requirements, course equivalencies, and see how courses you have taken or plan to take transfer to another college or university.

  • Access Transferology.com and create an account.
  • Enter the school name where you  plan to take or have taken a course.
  • Enter the department name of the course and select the course you have taken or plan to take. The course(s) you select will appear on the right side of your screen.
  • After you have entered all your courses, click on the green “Find schools that accept my coursework” button.
  • Click on Miami University – Oxford to view how your course(s) from the other school will transfer to Miami University. Courses that end in T** transfer as elective credit and not an equivalent Miami course.
  • If Miami University does not appear in the list of schools, it means that your course has not yet been evaluated by Miami University.
  • Please contact the Transfer Credit Evaluations staff at transfercrediteval@MiamiOH.edu or 513-529-8703 to have your course reviewed.
