Transfer Credit

Transferring credit as a current student

University of Mississippi students may take courses at other institutions. In order to guarantee the credit will transfer and apply to the student’s degree program, the student must obtain written approval from their academic dean before enrolling in the course at another institution. Prior approval protects students by determining if and how credits earned elsewhere may satisfy degree requirements. Students who do not receive prior approval risk not being awarded transfer credit if the courses do not equate to UM courses, do not satisfy degree requirements, are not accredited with regional and/or professional accrediting bodies, or other UM rule conflicts.

Please utilize the Transfer Course Equivalency Database as a resource to help find potential universities and courses. The listings in this database ARE NOT a final approval. The School of Business Advising Office in Holman 220 will review your request and then respond to you with a final approval or denial.

Note the following rules and regulations regarding transfer credit:

  1. Upper division business courses (300 +) will only be approved from AACSB accredited institutions
    To seek approval for a 300+business course, students should submit a current course syllabus along with the permission to transfer credit form
  2. 30 hours of your business courses must be completed at UM
  3. 12 of your final 21 hours must be completed at UM
  4. Only half of the degree requirements from junior/community college may be applied toward a BBA degree
