The Catholic University of America

Off-Campus Course Transfer Evaluation (Evaluation of Equivalency)

PURPOSE: To permit students to take courses at comparable accredited colleges or universities and to know in advance for which CUA courses these can be substituted.

WHEN: Any time before the student enrolls for the course. A student who wishes to take summer courses elsewhere should submit the evaluation form by May 1. If a student takes a course elsewhere without having it evaluated ahead of time, CUA cannot guarantee transfer credit.

CAUTION: Evaluation of equivalency does not guarantee credit. To receive credit, a course must meet all applicable university policies.

The school specifically limits the number of courses that may be transferred:

(1) total transfer courses within a degree program are limited to half
(2) transfer by advanced students is limited to 2 of the last 12 courses for the degree
(3) the number of courses that may be transferred after matriculation is limited to two times years in residence; and
(4) the number of courses transferred from summer sessions is limited to two per year.

All forms and information required for transfer credit is available at:

PROCEDURE: Complete the appropriate sections of the forms, including (for each course) course, number, credit hours, and dates/days/times of session. During the summer months, students may download, print, complete and submit the forms to the Transfer Office in McMahon B-10 or email
