Transfer Equivalency Resources
UofL generally accepts academic credit from regionally accredited institutions.
The course equivalencies provided are for information purposes only and subject to change due to revisions in course offerings. The decision regarding completion of general education or major requirements is left to an academic advisor or department. UofL does not transfer in developmental or technical courses.
For courses that are transferred to UofL without a direct match a pseudo course will be used to award the student credit. A pseudo course is defined as a transfer course that is not exactly equivalent to a UofL course. The transfer course is assigned a UofL departmental prefix (i.e. HUM, SOC, etc.) and a pseudo course number (100X, 200X, etc.). In many instances, pseudo courses can count for general education credit. If a pseudo course can be used for general education credit, it will be indicated in the pseudo course title. For example, the course title for a pseudo humanities course will be listed as "General Educ Req - H".
