Boston University’s transfer equivalency site is provided as a guide to how classes taken at other colleges or universities may transfer to Boston University. The fact that a course appears in this list is no guarantee that the course will transfer in your individual case. Additionally, some courses may not appear on this list, but may be eligible for transfer.
Final determination of transfer credit acceptance is ultimately made by the respective Department and Division Evaluators and thru the University Registrar upon admittance to Boston University. You must submit course syllabi and sealed official transcripts of all completed coursework before a final determination can be made on credit transfer.
We understand that colleges and universities have adopted a wide variety of policies around academic assessments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Courses graded under newly instituted binary grading standards (e.g. Pass, Satisfactory, Credit) issued by U.S. institutions that have adopted modified grading for spring 2020 will be considered eligible for the basis of transfer credit. Courses normally graded as Pass/Fail remain excluded for transfer credit. If your transcript does not have a notation that explains the policy, we ask that you obtain a letter from the Registrar at your transferring school or college.
