Transfer of credit for courses that you have taken at another university or college is managed by the BYU Transfer Office.

Courses can transfer in three ways:

  • As an elective (counting toward the 120 hours needed for graduation).
  • Equivalent to a BYU course, counting towards a general education requirement.
  • Equivalent to a BYU course, counting towards a major requirement.
