Transfer Credits - Definition & Meaning

Transfer credits refer to academic credits earned at one educational institution that can be transferred and applied toward a degree or program of study at another institution.

When a student transfers from one college or university to another, the new institution evaluates the courses taken at the previous school and determines which credits are eligible for transfer.

The acceptance of transfer credits is subject to the receiving institution's policies, compatibility of course content, and the grades earned in the original courses.

Transfer credits provide students with the opportunity to continue their education at a different institution without having to retake equivalent courses, thus saving time and tuition costs.
