Transfer Credit

We Change Lives

Like most other universities, McNeese accepts college-level credit that you have earned elsewhere. Credit from a U.S. Institution: Decisions regarding undergraduate transfer credit from a US university/college will be processed and evaluated once you are accepted to McNeese and the final transcript from the US institution is received in our office. Credit from an International Institution: Decisions regarding transfer credit from another country are made by the individual departments. If you are admitted to McNeese, you will need official course descriptions from your university/college and official translations in English of all courses you wish to be considered for transfer credit. The evaluation will be done once you arrive at McNeese during your first semester of study.
Transfer credit for graduate students transferring from a US university/college will be decided by the department once the student arrives at McNeese.
