To help in your educational planning, the Office of Admissions has developed a searchable transfer course database. The following information is to assist users with navigating this new database. To access the database, click on the Transfer Equivalencies Database link below.
- 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 degree checksheet 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.
