Curricular Requirements

Transfer applicants to the University of Pennsylvania apply to one of Penn’s four undergraduate schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, Penn Engineering, the School of Nursing, and the Wharton School.  Transfer applicants are not eligible for coordinated dual-degree programs. All four undergraduate schools, and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, are academically rigorous and have their own requirements and policies. Please be sure to review all options so that you apply to the appropriate school.

Official approval of transfer credit takes place after matriculation and must be granted by the department from which you are seeking credit. Specific information about courses can be found on respective department websites and is available in the Course Register at:

If admitted to a specific school within the University of Pennsylvania as a transfer applicant, a student is not then eligible to transfer between schools.
