Transfer Credits

Finding out which of your courses will transfer into your new school is a huge part of the transfer process.

To help make this process a little easier, Mizzou offers a transfer course equivalency site that gives you an idea of what credits will transfer into Mizzou. The site offers course equivalencies for most colleges and universities in Missouri and select out-of-state institutions. If your school is not listed, we will evaluate those courses upon admission.
