Transfer Credit

Transfer credit policy
Subject to approval by the Registrar's Office, courses, but not grades, completed at other regionally-accredited institutions with a grade of 2.0 (C) or higher will be accepted for credit.

Transfer credit limits
From regionally-accredited 2 year colleges: 66 credits
From regionally-accredited 4 year colleges: 96 credits

To be considered for transfer credit, coursework must have been completed at an academic institution or program that was regionally accredited prior to the learner’s withdrawal from the institution.

Courses eligible for transfer will be evaluated using criteria such as the course credit total, department, title, level, and description of course content.   

Credit awarded by other institutions through processes such as transfer, prior learning assessment (PLA) credit, or by examination will not be accepted for transfer credit at the University of Redlands.  

Not all courses for which the University of Redlands may award transfer credit are offered by the University of Redlands, but may be allowed to transfer in as general elective credit to programs that offer elective or are found to meet outcomes of the general education requirements in the undergraduate programs offered at the University of Redlands.

International Transfer Credit for All Learners
International courses may be awarded transfer credit depending on the review by a University of Redlands approved third-party evaluator who will assess their equivalency to U.S. courses or degree programs.  An official transcript must be submitted to complete the evaluation process.

For more information, please see the University Academic Standards section of the catalog.  (this will be an anchor)

Transfer Students
The College of Arts and Science Admissions office is here to help you with the transfer process.  We encourage students to contact our office  so we may answer your questions and discuss transferring to Redlands.

In an ongoing effort to support transfer students, the University of Redlands has established Articulation Agreements with 34 of our regional community colleges listed below. These agreements list the acceptable courses that will both transfer and fulfill specific Liberal Arts Foundation  (LAF) general education requirements.

 If we do not have an Articulation Agreement with your college, you may use any of these agreements as a general guideline for your course selection.

College of Arts and Sciences Students

Do you want to take a general education (LAF) course at a community college, perhaps over summer?  You  do not need to submit a course approval form for a course on these agreements to transfer to the LAF category under which it is listed. It will transfer and fulfill the LAF, provided

  • The course transfers with a grade of "C" or higher
  • The course is not a repeat of one you previously received credit for
  • The course does not put you over the maximum number of transfer credits allowed

Please contact the Registrar's Office before registering for a course if you are unsure as to whether it will transfer to Redlands or meet one of our LAF requirements.
