Transfer Credit from Other Universities

If you are interested in transferring as an undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral student, Drexel Dornsife’s academic advisors can provide guidance on how to receive transfer credit from other accredited colleges and universities.

Find out when and how to apply for transfer credit.

Current students can also receive credit for a course at another institution with permission from their program by contacting their academic advisor.

Transfer of Credit for Incoming Undergraduate Students

All admitted students automatically receive a transfer credit evaluation from Drexel.

Drexel may grant you credit for courses completed at a college or university that is either regionally accredited or a recognized candidate for accreditation according to the Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Higher Education.

The evaluation of transfer credits for international students may require the submission of course syllabi and/or course-by-course evaluation by an approved international credential evaluation service.

Learn more about transferring to Drexel and undergraduate transfer credit evaluations on Drexel’s Undergraduate Admissions site.

The Drexel Promise: Beginning in fall 2023, The Drexel Promise will provide students who have earned an associate degree at an accredited community college in either Pennsylvania or New Jersey with a renewable scholarship for 50% of the cost of tuition as they work to complete their bachelor's degree as a Drexel Dragon.

Transfer of Credit for Incoming Graduate Students

Incoming graduate students who are transferring from an external institution may transfer up to 15 graduate-level quarter credits toward Dornsife degree requirements for their master’s or doctoral program.
