Transfer credits can be found in Campus Solutions Student Homepage. Click on the Academic Records tile and select Transfer Credit Report from the menu on the left side of the screen. This page will list all posted transfer credits. Transfer credits can also be viewed on the Course History screen which can be found in the same menu list.
