Embry-Riddle wants you to get credit for courses and exams that you've previously taken. Use the Transfer Portal to get a free, unofficial estimate of how your credits will transfer to different ERAU degree programs.
Transfer Credit Evaluation
The Office of the Registrar evaluates and records transfer credit and advanced placement test credit. In general, transfer credit is awarded when the course is:
- earned at a school accredited by a Regional Accreditation Association
- grade of “C” or better
- grade of “P” if the transcript indicates that it is equal to “C” or better
- college level (not remedial) coursework
- earned in the past ten years
Credits taken outside the U.S. require a course-by-course evaluation in English by an independent credential evaluation service. To obtain an evaluation, please contact one of the following organizations:
Due to additional accreditation guidelines, courses in certain programs such as Engineering require review by the department. You may need to provide course documents such as a course outline.
The applicability of credits to specific degree programs is evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Please review the catalog for the degree requirements for the program that you plan to pursue. Transfer courses may be applied toward specific requirements, such as general education or major requirements, or serve as elective credit.
