Transferring Credits to BU

Transferring Credits to BU


Are you a current BU student planning to take courses at another College or University?

Transfer Credits

New Transfer Course Equivalency Application
The course equivalency application is designed to allow students and advisors to look up a course at another institution and immediately see the Bloomsburg Equivalency. Prior to coming to the Office of the Registrar to complete a Prior Approval form, use this application to determine what the Bloomsburg Equivalency will be.

Always meet with your academic advisor for specific information concerning transfer courses and their application to your degree requirements.

Undergraduate Students

  • Go to the Office of the Registrar to fill out a Prior Approval form (make sure to bring a copy of the course descriptions, and course numbers of the courses you want to take).
  • Students can use our BU course equivalencies tool to look for course equivalents in a PA college or university.
  • If you wish to transfer the grade from a PASSHE school ONLY, you may fill out a Undergraduate Visiting Student form. Filling out this form ensures that the credit and grade will transfer back to BU, not just the credit. This also ensures the student that a transcript will be sent from the visiting college to BU.
  • Once your course is finished, have an unopened, official transcript sent to Bloomsburg University, Office of the Registrar.
  • Please refer to BU Policy 3343 and PASSHE Policy 2016-24 when transferring credit.
