How will my semester credits transfer to OSU?


OSU is on a quarter-term system. When transferring in coursework from a semester-system institution, multiply the number of credits by 1.5 to see how many quarter credits may be transferred. (For example, 3 semester hours x 1.5 = 4.5 quarter credit hours).

If you are planning to transfer OSU credits out to a semester system, multiply the number of quarter credits by 0.67 to find out how many credits will transfer (4 quarter credits x 0.67 = 2.68 semester hours). This is a rough estimate and each university may be different. Be sure to check with the university you are transferring to to ensure they will accept the credits.
