Preliminary Transfer Credit Evaluation

Are you considering transferring, but have questions about how your courses and credits would apply towards a JCU degree? We are pleased to offer a preliminary transfer credit evaluation of your courses to help you understand how your credits could potentially transfer.

To obtain a preliminary transfer credit evaluation, please send us your transcripts and, if applicable, your AP (Advanced Placement) and/or IB (International Baccalaureate) test results to [email protected] We accept unofficial transcripts for the purposes of this evaluation; if you don't have your transcripts available, you may send us your self-reported courses and grades using our transfer credit evaluation form. You should expect to receive your evaluation via email within two weeks of sending us your documents. An official evaluation will be issued by our Registrar's office and included in your acceptance packet upon receipt of your official transcripts.

You may transfer up to 60 credits (more may be transferred with special permission) of a total of 120 required to complete the bachelor's degree. Further transfer credit details. Learn more about transfer credits.


Transfer students are held to the same application requirements as other applicants, with the exception of one letter of recommendation, test scores, and high school transcripts. Should you have fewer than 45 US college/university credits, we do require official final high school transcripts and may request SAT or ACT scores. You may apply through either our online application or the Common Application.

We use a generous scholarship evaluation designed to maximize awards for our transfer students.
