A maximum of 132 transfer hours (quarter hours) are potentially applicable to an undergraduate degree at DePaul. This includes transfer courses taken at both community colleges and other four-year institutions. Of the 132 quarter hours, a maximum of 99 quarter hours earned at a community college may be applied to a DePaul University degree. CLEP, International Baccalaureate and/or AP credits combined with transfer credits from two-year institutions will total no more than 99 hours and combined with credits from four-year institutions will total no more than 132 hours. Additional information on types of transfer work accepted is available under Transfer Credit Regulations. For more information see the Undergraduate Student Handbook.
You can often get this information from the Transfer Guides and Transfer Course Lists. More information is available at the Admission and Aid Transfer Center.
Please remember, however, that there are limits to the number of courses that you can transfer, and all courses taken by DePaul students at other institutions must be approved for application toward DePaul degree requirements. See the other questions and answers about transfer credit in this FAQ.
Note: A transfer student is defined as someone having between 30 and 132 hours of transfer credit applied to their DePaul record.
