Transfer Equivalencies

To help in your educational planning, the Office of Academic Records developed a searchable transfer course database. This will help you select courses that will transfer and apply toward an OU degree.*

Connector column: Use of the word “AND” signifies a course has more than one OU equivalent. For example:

Transfer of prior learning assessment/advanced standing credit

Advanced standing credit posted on transcripts from institutions in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education will transfer to the University subject to the same conditions as resident credit from these campuses.

Advanced standing credit posted on transcripts from all other institutions will be accepted by the University as long as the credit was earned through one of the advanced standing mechanisms mentioned in this brochure. The dean of the college in which a student will earn a degree will determine how this credit applies toward the degree.

Current OU students taking classes at other schools

While the class is in progress, submit a class schedule from the other institution to the OU Office of Admissions so the class will be recognized for OU enrollment.
