Transfer credit earned by students at institutions accredited by the HLC or the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education will be accepted for transfer at face value. Credits earned at institutions accredited by organizations other than the HLC and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education will be reviewed on a course-by-course basis and may be accepted for transfer if the course is determined to be substantially equivalent to a University of Oklahoma course or courses.
The following link to the U.S Department of Education website is a list of institutional accreditors from where we can accept credit:
As another resource we can use the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) website, specifically the section that relates to Transfer Credit Practices of Selected Educational Institutions (TCP).
If you need to send in a transcript from another university, please have the institution send an official electronic transcript to Oardocuments@ou.edu on your behalf or you can drop off a sealed official copy to Buchanan Hall (1000 Asp Ave), on the 3rd floor in the TE drop box outside of Room 330. If you have specific questions about transferring credit to OU, please call 405-325-0514 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
