Evaluation of Transcripts:
In order to have your transcripts evaluated, you must apply for admission to YSU and have an official copy of your college transcripts sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. After receiving your transcripts, a coordinator will evaluate them for credit and equate courses you have taken to YSU courses.
Will my credits transfer?
If you have attended another college or university that is accredited by one of the regional accrediting organizations of the American Council on Education, your credits will transfer.
Classes may transfer as general credit, elective credit, or they may apply to your degree.
How will I know if the classes apply to my degree requirements or my major?
It is possible that the course equivalencies you are looking for are available online through the Course Applicability System (CAS). Once you are in the CAS system, click on the course equivalency guide button and select YSU as the target school. To see YSU's available online equates click on CAS.

Are there any courses you should take before transferring?
The answer for this question depends on the course of study you intend to follow. If you are undecided about a major, you might want to take general education courses in the areas of English composition, math, arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. If you are following a specific course of study, you may want to refer to the YSU undergraduate bulletin or meet with an academic advisor to map out future academic plans.
