Howard University accepts academic courses from regionally accredited colleges and universities as transfer credits. Upon receipt of a student’s official transcript(s)/examination results (and transfer course petition form for current students transferring college credits), official transfer credits will be evaluated and processed by Howard University's Transfer Services team. For more information on our credit hour assignment policy and articulation agreements, please also see the below PDF links.
Prospective undergraduate transfer students, as well as first year applicants who have taken dual enrollment courses, who would like to request a preliminary evaluation to determine eligible transfer credits are encouraged to contact the Office of Admission at firstname.lastname@example.org. All email requests should include a legible PDF copy of your unofficial college transcript. Please note, only general education courses are evaluated as part of the preliminary evaluation. We generally encourage students who take courses outside of Howard to take non-major coursework, as these courses are most likely to be transferable. Moreover, where the course titles and course descriptions are similar, these courses are most likely to be transferable. You may find our major schemes via each program's website or in the university's undergraduate course catalog.
For official transfer credit consideration, please see the below details that also include transcript/exam record submission instructions.
