How Courses Transfer to USCB

  • USCB only accepts course credit from institutions accredited by regional accreditation agencies or who are active members of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
  • USCB makes decisions about course equivalencies per institution. For example, if you took psychology 101 at another university, USCB decides whether or not it will also count for psychology 101 at USCB based on the institution where the course was taken.
  • Courses must have a grade of C or higher to be considered for transfer credit at USCB.
  • Remedial, developmental, technical, no credit courses, and courses taken for pass/fail are not eligible for transfer credit.
  • You must apply and submit all of your official transcripts before an official evaluation of your transfer work can be performed.
