Will credits transfer?

Many courses may be transferred to KU from other institutions. Please use CredTran as a guide for transferring classes from a current or former school to KU. Note: Courses not listed in CredTran may still be eligible for transfer upon review.

Courses listed in CredTran are not guaranteed to transfer, and even if a course will transfer it does not necessarily mean it will fulfill a requirement at KU. Before a final determination can be made, official transcripts must be submitted to KU.

Please note that KU accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited colleges and universities, but not from nationally accredited colleges and universities.

Kansas Board of Regents Course Transfer and Reverse Transfer:
More than three dozen courses offered by Kansas community colleges are guaranteed to transfer to the University of Kansas. Visit the Kansas Board of Regents Transfer & Articulation website for details on these courses, or to see the full list of courses approved for guaranteed transfer among all Kansas public postsecondary institutions.

Additionally, students transferring to the University of Kansas or another Kansas public university from a Kansas public community college or technical college, or vice versa, are eligible for reverse transfer.
