For planning to take equivalent courses at other institutions.

It's always best to choose a course in advance that you know will count for a Penn State course you need!

Previously Approved Courses

Admissions keeps a database of courses previously determined to be equivalent to Penn State courses.

  • Transfer Credit Tool - The Transfer Credit Tool allows you to see how courses taken at other universities transfer to Penn State. The Penn State college/major of enrollment will determine how transfer credits will be used to meet degree requirements.


If the course you want is not listed, provide the syllabus from the other institution to the appropriate academic department at Penn State for evaluation.
