One of the most important things to consider in picking a new school is seeing what it will take to earn your degree and how your previous credits transfer. We offer a pre-evaluation of credit that will help you chart a clear pathway toward a UofL degree. Once you submit your request, we will evaluate your prior coursework and send you a personalized report that will show you:

• Your course-by-course credits and how they will transfer
• Contact information for an academic advisor who can explain your degree plan in detail
• Contact information for a career counselor who can help determine what degree will lead you to the career goal you want

All three services are being offered prior to submitting an admissions application and paying the mandatory $25 fee. We will email your pre-evaluation of credit to you within 5 days of your request. Pre-evaluations at the start of a semester, during the months of August and December, may be delayed due to our processing of current applicants.

For a complete pre-evaluation and accurate advising, we request that you send us unofficial transcripts for each school you have attended. For example, if you have attended three institutions, we request that you send us three unofficial transcripts, one from each institution. These documents, including your unofficial transcript(s), will not be retained for application use.

Pre-evaluations cannot be completed for international credit, or for students who have already earned a previous bachelor's degree.


If you wish to apply for admission to the University of Louisville, please complete an undergraduate application. Please note the transcripts submitted for pre-evaluation are not considered official transcripts and will not be used to determine eligibility for admission.

You must submit official transcripts to:

Office of Admissions, Dept. AO
University of Louisville
Louisville, KY 40292
