Transfer credit evaluations are only conducted after the student has completed an application and been accepted. Only credits from a regionally accredited institution are transferable to the University of Miami. At UM, the transfer of credits is a two-part process:
After the student has been accepted:
- Transcripts are reviewed on a course-by-course basis.
- The student will receive a detailed transfer credit evaluation with any possible UM course equivalencies.
After arriving on campus:
- Students will meet with their academic advisors or departmental deans.
- Advisors will determine how the transferable credits satisfy degree requirements and approve the course equivalencies.
Credits that will not be accepted:
- Credits taken at an institution that is not regionally accredited*.
- Courses with a Grade Lower than C
- Physical Education, Professional, or Technical Courses
- The following credits completed through a Two-Year College: Study Abroad, Independent Study or Internships
Credits earned through online coursework must have a grade of C or better and be taken through a regionally accredited institution. Courses that have grades of C- or lower will not transfer; however, these grades will still be used to compute an admission grade point average.
