  • Determining how transfer credits are applied to satisfy your graduation requirements can be complicated.
    • Some credits may transfer as specific U of I courses, and therefore satisfy specific degree requirements.
    • Others may transfer only as hours of credit in a general area, and therefore as open electives only.
    • Work with your academic advisor to determine how your transfer credits may be applied in your program.
  • Transfer courses must be taken for a letter grade!
    • When you transfer them to ILLINOIS, they will show on your transcript as 'CR' or 'TR' (see GPA Section).
    • Transfer courses may be used to fulfill requirements (gen eds, econ major requirement, and supporting coursework).
