Transfer Student Frequently Asked Questions

Institutional Resources

As an MSU Denver student you have access to a surplus of resources that will assist you in achieving your academic goals! Check them out here.

Transfer Credit Adjustments

Transfer courses that need faculty review are most often sent directly to MSU Denver faculty to review during the initial transfer credit evaluation process when you sent in your transcript. If you believe there is a transfer course missing from your record or a course that needs faculty review, please contact your academic advisor. They will check the status of any pending courses in the review pipeline and help submit a course for review on your behalf if appropriate. You may be asked to provide information about the transfer course including syllabus or other course-related materials.

Previous Bachelor’s Degree Courses

Students with a prior bachelor’s degree may use some courses from the previous degree toward program requirements at MSU Denver. In many cases courses from a previous degree that fulfill degree requirements are identified during the initial transfer evaluation process. If there are still courses from your previous degree that fulfill degree requirements at MSU Denver please contact your academic advisor for assistance in getting those courses approved.
