​When reviewing your transfer credit evaluation (TCE) here are some helpful things to know:


  • If you see NO CRED under CMU Course, this means the course has been evaluated and was determined not to transfer.  Why would it not transfer?  Generally, this means the coursework is not germane to courses offered at CMU.
     
  • If you see XXX CRED under CMU Course, this means you received department credit because there is not an exact CMU course match.  This course could be used as a general elective or possibly a course on your program of study.  If you feel this course is equivalent to an exact CMU course, you can provide the course syllabus to a department chairperson for review.  The department chairperson will contact the Registrar's Office if the change is approved.  In the example above, you would provide the syllabus to the ART department since it was given ART CRED.
     
  • If you see SYLLABUS under CMU Course, this means we did not have enough information from a course description to make an equivalency determination.  You may provide a course syllabus directly to the academic department or to the Registrar's Office for further review.

  • If you see a notation under the UP column, this means this particular course satisfies one of our University Program-General Education requirements.  In the example above, MTH 132 and CPS 180 both satisfy Group IIB of our University Program requirements.
     
  • If you see a notation under the Comp column, this means this particular course satisfies one of our Competency-General Education requirements.  In the example above, MTH 132 satisfies our Mathematics Competency. 

    NOTE:  We do not award transfer credit for courses that are numbered below 100.
