Transferring credits to VCU
VCU accepts credits, with qualifying scores or grades, from a wide range of college-level courses. For a full list of academic credit sources, visit the VCU Bulletin.
Use our transfer course equivalents tool to see if courses you’ve completed at another institution have equivalents at VCU.
Other credit sources
In addition to courses taken at two- and four-year institutions, we evaluate credits earned from nontraditional higher education sources, including:
College credits earned from dual-enrollment, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge exams may transfer to VCU.
CLEP scores could help you earn credit in an equivalent VCU course.
See the VCU Bulletin to explore what credits may transfer from military service and ROTC courses.
Earning credit outside of VCU
Are you a current student looking to earn credits outside of VCU? Submit the Request to Take Courses at Another Institution form to avoid duplicating previous coursework or violating VCU graduation policies. Your request must be approved before you can register for any courses outside VCU.
