Transfer applicants rightly wish to know which credits they have completed will be transferred to Fordham upon acceptance. This is an important factor in ultimately accepting an offer of admission and enrolling. The following section addresses Fordham's transfer credit policies and procedures and answers some frequently asked questions regarding the topic.
When do applicants find out what credits will transfer?
Transfer credits are evaluated after a student has been admitted. We encourage a student to wait to submit an enrollment deposit until after their transfer credit evaluation has been completed.
Who evaluates transfer credit?
An admitted transfer student's online acceptance letter provides the contact information for the transfer dean of the college the student has been admitted to. Admitted transfer students should contact their transfer dean to request an evaluation of credit. The Dean's Office for each of the three undergraduate colleges (Fordham College at Lincoln Center, Fordham College at Rose Hill, and the Gabelli School of Business) ultimately determines which classes in Fordham's core curriculum will transfer. Additionally, to determine how credits transfer into the student's intended major choice at Fordham College at Lincoln Center or Fordham College at Rose Hill, a transfer student will be asked to request this information from the Associate Chair or faculty advisor of the academic department.
Students who have previously completed coursework at international universities must have their transcripts or mark sheets evaluated by WES before contacting the dean.
