Transfer Credit Approvals

If a student participates in a program where transfer credit is earned, the study abroad office strongly encourages students to get the transfer equivalencies pre-approved through the appropriate academic department. This is done using the Transfer Credit Approval Form. (This is not required if students are participating in MUDEC or faculty-led programs where Miami credit is earned.)

Students will bring course descriptions and/or syllabi of the courses they plan to take abroad to the chief departmental advisor (CDA) of the academic department from which the student hopes to receive credit. The CDA is then able to set and sign off on the appropriate Miami equivalency. Once completed, this paperwork is returned to the study abroad office and will be processed by the Registrar’s office upon receipt of the study abroad transcript.

Course substitutions are not documented through this form, but rather are considered academic agreements that are approved via a student’s DAR.
