Transferring credit from another university
Since courses change frequently and innumerable institutions and courses are available to students, there is no comprehensive list of qualified universities or courses that we accept for transfer. Each course is evaluated on an individual basis. Engineering courses are generally NOT transferable, unless from an approved study abroad program such as ITESM or EPFL, or explicitly accepted by the Engineering department.
For any course to be reviewed for possible transfer credit, students should use the Transfer Credit Form to submit your request (except for Study Abroad—students should then use the SATC form available in the Study Abroad Office, Warner Hall 3rd Floor).
Note: The College of Engineering uses a self-signed security certificate. Your browser may warn you about this when attempting to access the site. Rest assured that your transactions with the site are secure (i.e. you must authenticate to use the online form).
After you take the course: If approved, after you take the course, request an official e-transcript to be sent to email@example.com to the attention of Kourtney Bandish.
If an e-transcript is not an option, please have a physical copy of the official transcript mailed to: Carnegie Mellon University, University Registrar's Office, 5000 Forbes Ave, Warner Hall A19, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
Please note that ALL courses taken at other institutions must be taken for a letter grade. We will not accept courses taken as Pass/Fail. A grade of “TR” will appear for earned transfer credit (similar to AP for Advanced Placement). This information can be viewed on your SIO account. Although these credits can work toward degree requirements, they will not affect grade point averages.
Transfer credit from college in high school courses
The university's practice is that they do not grant credit for college in high school, taught by high school teachers. Transfer credit needs to be offered on an accredited college campus by college faculty to be applied.
