Application Process for Transfer Students

Credit Evaluation

Upon admission to Muskingum, all previous college transcripts will be evaluated for potential transfer credit. Upon review of submitted transcripts, the student will receive a Transcript Evaluation Form indicating which classes have been transferred and the credit value for each.

  • To be eligible for transfer credit, courses must be completed at an accredited college or university with a grade of C- or better.
  • Students may be asked to provide a college catalog from their previous institution(s) and/or a course syllabus for specific classes.
  • Transfer students must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours at Muskingum University, regardless of the number of credits transferred from other institutions, in order to graduate from Muskingum.
  • Class standing is determined by transferable semester credit hours. Minimum credit hours for class status are: sophomore (28), junior (60), senior (90).
  • Quarter hours earned at previous institutions are modified to semester hours. One quarter hour equals 0.67 semester hours.
  • Students may earn credits and/or advanced standing through departmental proficiency examinations, Advanced Placement Program, College Level Examination and through military service and lifelong experience.
