Transfer Equivalency Portal

The Transfer Equivalency Portal is subject to revision, as we continually evaluate course equivalencies. Check back often, and be sure to contact the registrar if you have any questions. 

The Office of the Registrar will transfer credit from accredited institutions, which may be used to satisfy any course requirements where the courses or course categories are generally equivalent to CMU requirements. To determine transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges, CMU will:

  • Review most current Higher Education Directory for College Accreditation
  • Transfer courses with CMU equivalencies or check course descriptions
  • Transfer general education block and/or courses with institutions listed on Signatories to General Education and Credit Transfer Policy.

The Office of the Registrar will consider credit from non-regionally accredited institutions on a case-by-case basis. CMU strongly encourages CMU students to get prior written approval (from the appropriate Division Chair, Provost, and Registrar) before enrolling for any courses at another institution and then attempting to transfer the credit to apply to any CMU degree program.

If your institution is not listed but is regionally accredited we will still accept transfer credit from it. For more information, please contact the Office of the Registrar at
