Transferring Credit

KU accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited college, universities, and community colleges. Many classes at your current or former school may be transferred to KU. However, you must submit official transcripts of completed course work before a final determination can be made. Also, KU uses a Transfer Equivalency System called CredTran, which is provided as a guide to how classes at your current or former school are transferred to KU. CredTran provides information on how credits you've earned at other schools may transfer to KU, including:

  • Advanced Placement Credits
  • International Baccalaureate Credits
  • College Level Examination Program Credits
  • Retroactive credit for foreign language classes
  • Exemptions based on ACT/SAT scores
  • Credit for military courses and basic training
