UMKC Course Transfer Policy

A transfer course evaluated as a direct equivalent to a UMKC course will be equated to that course number and may be applied to any program in which the UMKC course is accepted, subject to the same grade requirements.

Courses assigned a departmental abbreviation and level, but not equated to a specific course (for example HIST-2AB) are accepted as coursework in that department, but do not have an exact equivalent at UMKC. An advisor will determine how these courses will apply to requirements for a degree program.

Courses evaluated as non-equivalent (N-EQ-subject) are considered college level work for purposes of determining level (freshman, sophomore, etc), but will probably not be applicable to any degree program at UMKC, except with special approval. Courses evaluated as "not acceptable" for transfer will appear in the list with no equivalency. These courses will not be counted as hours of college credit, nor applied to any degree program.

The course equivalency tables contain information on how courses from other institutions have typically been accepted and applied to degree programs at UMKC. The information presented here does not represent a contractual agreement between UMKC and any other college or university, nor does it imply a contract between UMKC and any student. Courses equivalencies are constantly being reviewed and updated. All transfer courses are subject to the approval of an academic advisor.
