Transfer Credits

Did you complete courses at another institution or are you thinking about taking a class to transfer back to OSU? Learn more about equivalencies between other institutions and OSU. The Office of Admissions processes transfer credits. Visit these websites for more information:

Transfer Course Equivalencies

For information on courses from Oregon colleges and universities that are accepted in transfer to OSU, see Oregon colleges and universities course equivalencies page. You can also view equivalencies for schools outside of Oregon.

Baccalaureate Core Course Equivalencies

For information on courses from Oregon community colleges that transfer to OSU as baccalaureate core credit (courses that meet general education requirements) see the baccalaureate core course equivalencies page.

Reverse Transfer

Oregon State University has partnered with several community colleges to help identify and award associate degrees to students who have completed the degree requirements but may be unaware of this achievement. This is called reverse transfer.

Annually, our office will send OSU transcripts of qualifying degree partnership program students to our community college partners at the select schools listed below. They will evaluate the course work to determine if requirements have been met for an associate degree at their institution and will contact eligible students.

The transfer of records from OSU to these schools will cease once a student has been awarded an associate degree or applied for their baccalaureate degree from OSU.

We know our students work hard and we wish to see them justly awarded for the degrees they have earned.

Transfer of Credits Taken as an Undergraduate to a Graduate Program

Beginning academic year 2013/2014, the Office of the Registrar no longer hosts a Reservation of Credit form or process.

The Graduate School allows students to apply graduate courses taken as an undergraduate/postbaccalaureate student towards a graduate program utilizing their transfer credit policy and procedures. Students wishing to pursue this option will now work directly with the Graduate School. Review the specific Graduate School Transfer Credit criteria for more information.
