Transfer Credit

Course Equivalency

Missouri University of Science and Technology accepts transfer work from institutions that were formerly accredited by regional accreditors. According to the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), specifically:

  • Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC)
  • Higher Learning Commission (HLC)
  • Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)
  • New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)
  • Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC)
  • WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC)

Use our online course equivalency database to determine if a particular course has an already established Missouri S&T course equivalency.  If the class is not listed, it does not mean that the class will not transfer to Missouri S&T; it simply means that the course has not yet been evaluated.  For questions about Course Equivalencies, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
