The Office of the Registrar administers the transfer of credit policy.
Information such as the type of work accepted for transfer to Oberlin, transfer of credit limitations, exclusions to transfer of credit, regulations for work done in music, foreign countries or non-degree granting institutions, requesting transfer of credit, evaluation of transfer credits, and more are included in the Guide to Transfer of Credit Policies and Procedures.
Courses that apply to requirements for the degree (e.g., Curriculum Exploration; Quantitative and Formal Reasoning; Writing; and Cultural Diversity) must be completed at Oberlin College.
Work transferred to Oberlin may be counted (within the transfer of credit limitations) toward the degree but will not count toward the above requirements.
A fee applies to the transfer of credit; see the Expenses section of the current academic year catalog.
