Our Commitment to You

We know that transferring to new school can be stressful. You need quick and accurate information to make decisions about your academic future.

The staff at CU is committed to providing you with . . .

  • a timely assessment of your transcript
  • an honest estimate of the number of hours/semesters required for you to graduate
  • detailed instructions about, and assistance, with the transfer admissions process
  • financial aid help
  • the names and contact information of key staff that can assist you throughout the transfer process


Key Points for Transfer Students


  • You must apply for admission before your credits can be evaluated
  • We must have an official transcript of ALL college/universities where you enrolled even if you earned no credit.
  • Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for credit evaluation but official versions of all transcripts are required for full and formal acceptance.
  • When transferring less than 24 semester hours of credit, an official copy of your high school transcript is required.

Academic Credits

  • Students may transfer a total of 73 credit hours from accredited institutions.
    • In a "best case" scenario, some additional hours can be transferred. The total depends on many factors including courses taken and remaining courses needed to graduate. 
    • A transfer counselor will help you determine your credit transfer total.
  • Developmental and remedial courses will not transfer to CU. (This is usually any course with number below 100.)
  • Courses with a grade of "D" will transfer; however, "D" grades in the following courses may need to be repeated:
    • English composition courses
    • Area, major, or minor courses

Degree Progress and Audits

  • As courses are completed, they satisfy requirements for your area or major/minor, and general education set.
  • A general education course will also satisfy an area, a major or minor requirement, but only one if included in two components. 
  • The Upper Division component is satisfied from a cumulative total of all 300 - 400 level courses passed with a D or higher.
  • Most areas and majors allow a limited number of D grades before courses must be repeated.

Graduation Requirements

  • You should read and understand our Graduation Requirements.  Contact the Office of Student Records with your questions. 270.789.5233.
  • A minimum of 30 credit hours must be earned at CU to receive a degree.
  • One-third of your subject area or major and minor must be completed at CU to receive a degree.

Financial Aid

  • You must arrange for CU to receive copies of your Student Aid Report (SAR) for 2013-14 (for Summer 2014 enrollment) and/or 2014-15 (for Fall, Spring, and next Summer enrollment). Our FAFSA school code is 001959.
  • Financial Aid cannot be released unless and until your admissions file in complete.
  • A review of your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will be done to ensure your eligibility for aid.
