Transfer of Credits

At Bowling Green State University we understand the importance of receiving credit for the courses you have already completed. All admitted students will receive an official transfer credit evaluation within 7-10 business days of being admitted to BGSUBefore being admitted, please explore the following resources to assist you in estimating how your credits may transfer.


We encourage you to utilize Transferology, a free, online database that lists estimated course equivalencies for most Ohio institutions and a wide range of out-of-state institutions.  If your school is not listed on Transferology, it does not mean your classes will not transfer.  It simply means that an official evaluation will need to be completed by the Office of Transfer Credit Evaluation upon admission to BGSU.


Ohio Community College and Technical School Transfer Equivalency Guides

Transfer equivalency guides are available for many Ohio Community and Technical Colleges.  These guides assist in selecting courses that align with the BG Perspectives - BGSU's general education program.
