Transfer Credits

Official educational records must be sent directly to The University of Tulsa from your previous institution(s). Please request that all colleges and universities which you have attended send an official transcript directly to International Student Services at The University of Tulsa. Certified English translations are required for any transcripts issued in a different language. The translations must be word-for-word translations of the official document.

Students who have completed an application for undergraduate admission and have submitted official college and university transcripts may request a transfer credit evaluation to determine the number of credits The University of Tulsa can award for study at previous institutions. Please see the General Transfer Credit Guidelines below to understand how courses you have previously taken might be considered for transfer credit. It is important to note that the final 45 credit hours must be completed at our university in order to receive a degree from The University of Tulsa.

Transfer applicants must be in good standing at the institution last attended. Students who have been dismissed or suspended from any college or university cannot be considered for admission until one calendar year has elapsed. Credit earned at another college or university during the dismissal period will not be applied for credit toward a degree from The University of Tulsa unless approved by the readmitting dean. Transfer students who were previously enrolled at the University of Tulsa and were dismissed must petition the dean of their college of enrollment for readmission.
