Transfer Credit

Transcripts and Transfer Credit

Current University of Illinois undergraduate students should contact their college office for information on transfer credit restrictions prior to enrolling in courses at other institutions.

Students may use Transferology to view what coursework will transfer to the University. The transfer course equivalencies and the reports generated from the system do not constitute a contract between the student and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Students still need to contact their college offices to verify how the transfer coursework will be accepted and used towards graduation requirements in that college.

After permission has been granted to take off-campus coursework and the student has completed the course, an official transcript must be submitted directly from the institution where the coursework was taken. Official transcripts can be sent through U.S. mail or electronically as PDFs to:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions
University of Illinois
901 West Illinois Street, Suite 103
Urbana, IL 61801

Currently, electronic transcripts submitted through Docufile, eScrip Safe, and the Illinois Electronic Transcript Exchange (XAP) are accepted. Electronic transcripts can also be sent to etranscript@illinois.edu directly from the institution. If a transcript is received through this account from a student, it will not be considered official.

See Article 1, Part 3, 1-303(c) in the Student Code for more information.

Academic credit earned at another accredited University or college and accepted by the University of Illinois is recorded in semester hours.  Coursework will be listed on the transcript with the institution's name, total credit hours, GPA hours, Grade Points, and total GPA.  Individual classes and grades are not listed.
