Transferring credits

Once we have received your application and all required materials, your transcripts will be evaluated by the Office of International Admissions for general credits.

K-State's academic departments will determine if and how these courses will be applied to your degree program, so once you've arrived on campus:

  1. Complete the transcript validation process. This process determines which of your courses have K-State equivalencies and which credits meet the specific requirements for your major.
  2. Submit course descriptions or syllabi to your academic advisor. This will help them to determine if the course is equivalent to a K-State course and if it can be counted towards your major.
  3. Receive a final total of credits that transfer from your department. You will be able to discuss this matter further with your academic advisor.

Please note: Your transcript cannot be evaluated for general university transfer credits until after you have applied and submitted all required application materials.
