TRANSFER OF CREDITS

Acceptance of transfer credit may be granted in most fields of study to applicants who have earned credit from other regionally accredited colleges or universities. Courses completed with passing grades of C or higher at other colleges or universities and acceptable for academic credit by the University of Miami, will be verified, and where appropriate will be translated into University of Miami equivalents by the Office of Admissions. The Division of Continuing and International Education also determines which transferred courses may be counted toward meeting graduation requirements.

  • If you have followed a general liberal arts curriculum at a regionally accredited institution, it is likely that your credits will transfer to UM.

  • Credit is awarded for academic courses with an earned grade of C or higher. Courses that have a grade of C- or lower will not transfer, but the grades will be used to calculate an admission grade point average.

  • Transfer students admitted to the University will receive a detailed evaluation of their transfer credits upon admission. Transfer credits are available online in CaneLink.

  • Credit hours are not transferred from institutions not accredited by the appropriate regional accrediting association.

  • The University does not have a coursework forgiveness policy. The grades of any repeated courses will be averaged.

  • A student may not repeat a course in which a grade of C or high has been earned. This is considered an illegal repeat.

  • Upper division course requirements (300 level or above) at the University may not be satisfied with community college courses.
