Transfer and Alternate Credit
Transferring credits is when credits you earned at another institution of higher learning are applied toward your degree at Boise State. The Registrar’s Office evaluates your transcript to determine if the courses are equivalent to courses offered at Boise State. If a course is equivalent, you can count the credits earned in that course toward graduation. If the course is not equivalent, the credits will be general elective credits. Credits are only transferred if you are seeking your first baccalaureate degree.
