Current Transfer Agreements
The College of Arts & Science is currently home to nearly 3,500 transfer students—defined as students who come to the college after spending time at other colleges or institutions. That number comprises nearly 21 per cent of the university’s total undergraduate population. Transfer agreements make it easier for students to move between institutions without having to repeat course material.

Transfer Credit Terminology
An agreement between two institutions authorizing studies undertaken at one institution to credit toward studies undertaken at another institution. Articulation agreements can be bilateral (with each institution agreeing to recognize the other’s courses) or one-way. Credit transfer can be established on a course-by-course or block transfer credit basis.
The process of granting credit for a course (or courses) from one institution to another by completing a comparison of course content and learning outcomes for each individual course. Credit can be awarded for a specific U of S course (or courses) or non-specific credit for an area or an elective at the junior-level, senior-level, or unspecified-level.
The process of granting credit for a group of completed courses from one institution to another without requiring course-by-course assessments. An example would be granting a block of 30 to 60 transfer credits for a completed postsecondary diploma at a recognized institution.
