Currently enrolled University of Delaware students who want to take courses at another post-secondary institution and transfer the credits to UD must have the courses approved prior to registration at the other school. Only the students themselves may pursue the Transfer Credit Evaluation process - third-parties, parents, etc. may not pursue evaluation of coursework. There is a $75 processing fee per term for each institution from which courses were taken. Courses taken at one institution in 2 consecutive summer terms in the same summer only require one $75 fee. Students' accounts will be billed after the approved transfer credits are posted to their records.
Prior to enrolling in coursework at another institution, follow Steps 1 - 6 to ensure the credits transfer back to the University of Delaware. After completing the coursework at the other institution, the UD Registrar's Office-Transfer Credit must receive an official copy of the transcript in order to post the credits to the student's UD record.
STEP 1: Complete the Transfer Credit Evaluation Form. Read the directions and sign the Transfer Credit policy statement.
STEP 2: Go to the Transfer Matrix (http://www.udel.edu/transfercredit) to see if the desired courses have previously been approved to transfer by UD faculty. If the courses are listed, proceed to STEP 4. In the Transfer Matrix, if the college where the student would like to take courses is not listed or if the courses the student would like to take are not listed, proceed to STEP 3.
STEP 3: For courses not listed in the Transfer Matrix, schedule a meeting with or email the departmental faculty for a review of course descriptions. The faculty member completes the "University of Delaware equivalents" section of the form or emails the student with the course equivalent information. A copy of the email should be attached to the Transfer Credit Evaluation form prior to being signed by the assistant dean (STEP 5).
STEP 4: Meet with the student's academic advisor to determine the applicability of the courses to the degree program. Will the courses count toward satisfying degree requirements or as elective credit?
STEP 5: On the form, obtain the signature of the assistant dean of the student's college. If the faculty contact emailed equivalent course information to the student, include a copy of the email with the Transfer Credit Evaluation form.The assistant dean's office should also verify the accreditation for the institution. Only coursework from institutions accredited by an appropriate regional accrediting association is acceptable for transfer to UD. The final determination of acceptable accreditation lies with the UD Registrar's office.
STEP 6: Return the signed form to the Registrar's Office at 210 S. College Ave. before enrolling in the course(s).
STEP 7: After completing the coursework at the other institution, request an official transcript be sent to:
Registrar's Office-Transfer Credit
Two weeks after requesting the official transcript be sent to UD, check UDSIS to see if the credits have been posted. If not posted, verify UD has received the official transcript by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: If the student is receiving federal student aid and intends to use these funds in the academic term(s) for which this form applies, please make an appointment with the Student Financial Services.
