Transferring credits consists of two parts:
- the transcript review to determine if courses will be accepted for transfer and
- determination of how transferred credits meet specific requirements.
The steps are as follows:
Step 1: Have official transcript(s) sent to:Office of Transfer Affairs
University of Vermont
360 Waterman Building
Burlington, VT 05405 Phone: 802/656-0867
Step 2: Access transfer affairs evaluation after their review
Log in to your My UVM Portal using your UVM NetID and email password. Click on "Transfer Credit Evaluation" located in the Academics section.
Step 3: Run a CATS audit report
Your CATS audit will show if transferred credits fulfill specific requirements or if they are electives. Log in to your My UVM Portal using your UVM NetID and email password. Click on "Cats for Students" located in the Academics section.
How to transfer credits fulfill distribution, major, and minor requirements
- Only 3-credit courses can fulfill distribution, major and minor requirements. In the case where a class transfers as a fraction, 2.50 credits or higher can fulfill a 3-credit course requirement.
- 0XX, XXX, or 1XX course numbers
These numbers represent courses that have successfully been transferred but are not an exact number match to a UVM course. Check your CATS Audit to see how they have been applied to requirements or electives. In some cases further review may be required by a Department Chair or their designee. The Dean's Office must be notified by the department if the 0XX, XXX, or 1XX transfer credit meets a major or minor requirement.
