Request for Transfer Credit Approval
(continuing matriculated undergraduate students only)
Continuing matriculated undergraduate students have the option to take course at another institution and transfer the credits to Central Connecticut State University. However, students need permission to take a course at another institution BEFORE the course is taken. The permission ensures that the credit will be transferable back to CCSU and will determine the CCSU course equivalency.
Please note, regardless of the number of credits transferred, a student must complete a minimum number of courses in residence (taken at CCSU) in the major, minor and overall. Review the degree requirements for detailed information.
If you have any questions about the procedure, please contact Ms. Rebecca Pickering, the Transfer Credit Evaluator for current active CCSU students, at 860-832-2315.
Transfer Credit Procedures:
- Fill out the form Request for Transfer Credit Approval For Continuing Undergraduate Students.
- Obtain appropriate approvals for the form. (Failure to obtain approval may result in not receiving transfer credit.)
- Discuss your intentions with your academic advisor.
- To determine CCSU course equivalencies, visit our database of local schools and CCSU equivalencies.
- If your school or particular course is not in the database, then you need to contact the Admissions Office (Davidson Hall, room 115; telephone: 860-832-2293).
- Submit form to the Registrar's Office Transfer Credit Evaluator, Ms. Rebecca Pickering, located in Davidson Hall, room 116.
- Please allow 3 business days to receive an answer on approval for the request form. Please keep this in mind when planning on registering for the course at the other school.
- Bring the approved Request For Transfer Credit Approval form with you to the other school when you register. The other school may require proof of prior approval.

- A minimum grade of "C-" must be earned for the course to be eligible for transfer credit.
- The course will appear as transfer credit with a grade of "TR" on your CCSU transcript. This will not affect your CCSU GPA.
- If after submitting the approved form you should register for a different course at the other institution, contact the Registrar's Office to update your request form.
