Introducing The NEW Transfer Credit Portal Tool

Create a free transfer portal account using your phone or computer - It's EASY!

As a Future Roadrunner, you can now use the Transfer Credit Portal to simplify the transfer process and help you with planning your upcoming semesters.

  • Discover which previous college credits will transfer.
  • Learn how those credits will apply to your MSU Denver degree.
  • See how close you are to earning your degree.
  • Track what steps you should be completing and when.

The portal is an unofficial evaluation that will allow you to see how credits might transfer to your MSU Denver student record. After you're admitted, you will need to request official transcripts directly from the issuing school, institution or agency. Only official transcripts are used for official transfer credit evaluations to determine how credits will transfer in to your MSU Denver student record.

Please note, the Transfer Credit Portal is an unofficial evaluation. After being admitted you will need to submit official transcripts for an official evaluation of your credits. 

Out-of-State / International Credits

You need a preliminary transfer credit evaluation

A preliminary evaluation is meant to provide students with an initial understanding of how credits will transfer to MSU Denver. This evaluation will not officially transfer credit to the University. 

The portal will accept out-of-state credits but it will not generate how that course will transfer to MSU Denver. If you have both in-state and out-of-state credits you can still use the portal for your in-state credits.

1. Collect all your unofficial transcripts from each institution you've attended

2. Email them to the Office of Transfer Services


After being admitted you will need to submit official transcripts for an official evaluation of your credits. 



Transfer Credit Portal FAQ


I already have completed a degree, should I use the portal?

No - you do not need to enter the portal.  Email the Office of Transfer Services for a preliminary credit evaluation.


I have attended more than one institution. Do I enter my credits into the portal from each one or since I transferred all the credits into my last institution, can they all come from there?

You need to enter the original institution that the credit was earned for us to properly evaluate if your credit will transfer. After being admitted, you will be required to have a transcript for each institution attended listing those credits. 


When using the Transfer Credit Portal you might see these messages along the way, heres what they mean!


We do not accept transfer courses from this institution because it does not meet our accreditation standards

This means that the school is considered a non-transferable institution and credits are not recognized by MSU Denver.


Pending Review

This means the credit you entered wasn't recognized by the system and may need review from MSU Denver faculty. it doesn't mean it wont transfer it just might take a couple more steps later on to get it transferred over. 


Credit Not Accepted

You must receive a C or better from an accredited institution for MSU Denver to accept the course as a transfer credit.
