Transfer Course Evaluation Process

If you have taken courses at another institution in Economics, Mathematics or Statistics that you want to count towards your major requirements, you will have to have them evaluated. If you attended an institution in the United States and want to see if the course has already been approved as equivalent to a course at the University of Minnesota it can be found in Transferology. For courses that need to be evaluated we require a syllabus that provides information about the course you completed. A syllabus is a detailed document that explains what was taught in the course. It is not the same as your transcript or a course description. How to submit transfer courses for review:

Regarding Math or Stats courses, students need to complete the Re-Evaluation of Credits Transferred form. Contact your collegiate advisor to obtain the form. If you have any questions regarding Math or Stats courses you can also contact the departments.
