Tips for Transferring Credits

  • Once you have been admitted to Benedictine University, your transcripts will be evaluated using criteria set forth by the Transfer Credit Policy. The total number of credit hours transferring and course equivalencies in the skills, core electives and major areas will be determined. Department chairs may be consulted when determining equivalencies in the major credit and cognate section. Syllabi may be requested for further evaluation in some cases.
  • As a part of your evaluation, you will receive an Equivalency Report. The Equivalency Report is a breakdown of how Benedictine University accepts your transferrable credit. Transferable courses will be listed by the institution at which they were completed. Please reference the course notes on your EQ Report for specific course information (if applicable).
  • The Transfer Credit Evaluation team strives to maintain accuracy, consistency and integrity during every transfer credit evaluation and makes every effort to research the courses completed. If you have questions regarding the transferability or equivalency of your transfer coursework.

TIP #1: Get Started Early

Evaluating your credits may take longer than expected, so plan to gather and submit your transcripts, test scores and other materials as soon as possible after applying.

TIP #2: One Size Doesn't Fit All

No two programs, courses or students are the same, so we carefully and thoroughly evaluate courses from hundreds of colleges and universities to give you the most accurate placement in your desired program at BenU. Get a preview of how your credits will transfer using the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) or Transferology to find courses you have taken and compare them with your BenU Program Checklist.

TIP #3: Remember to Make It Official

Don’t forget: You can use TES or Transferology to get an overview of your credit equivalencies at any time, but only the results of your official credit evaluation are posted to your BenU transcript, and credit equivalencies may vary. Be sure to submit your transcripts and test scores promptly after applying.
