Transfer Credit/Credit Away

When students receive credit for courses or other types of academic work done elsewhere, it is referred to as equivalent credit. Some of these credits will be the result of coursework taken before matriculation at Penn, but it is also possible to do a limited number of courses “away” after matriculation.

Credit earned before the student matriculates at Penn is referred to as Transfer Credit. Credit earned at another institution while the student is enrolled at Penn (post-matriculation) is referred to as Credit Away.

Policies regarding the types and amount of equivalent credit allowed vary by school.

These policies govern the transfer of credits taken before a student is officially enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania.
