Transferable General Education Courses

Will it transfer?

Courses that have an OU equivalent course number of 1999 (lower-division) or 3999 (upper-division) will transfer to the University and often can be applied toward a degree. In some cases, they may substitute for required courses; in others, they may transfer as elective credit. In some instances, these courses have been approved for general education credit, which is indicated in the “Gen. Ed.” column in search results. Many majors require specific courses in the general education core areas. Please refer to the OU Course Catalog for major-specific requirements. How each course will apply toward an OU degree will be determined by the degree-recommending college within the University. Additionally, courses that carry fewer semester hours than their OU counterpart will generally substitute for the indicated OU courses, but students must make up the difference in credit hours before graduation.

If a lower-division course is equivalent to an upper-division OU course, it will substitute for the specified course. However, additional upper-division hours may be required for graduation.

Transfer courses with letters after the course number have multiple titles with varying equivalencies. To ensure the correct equivalent, check for corresponding course titles.

After admission

Once you have been admitted to OU, the Office of the Registrar does a complete evaluation of your transfer credit. If you are admitted with a semester in progress, you will need to provide the Office of Admissions & Recruitment with an official transcript showing your final courses and grades, and they will be added to your transfer credit evaluation. You will be assigned an academic advisor who will work with you to determine how your transfer work will apply toward your OU degree and assist you in planning a schedule of classes for your first semester at OU.

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.
