Transfer Your Credits

Oregon State University is on a quarter-term system and has many students from semester-based colleges and universities transfer credits from OSU to their home institutions. Understanding the quarter-to-semester conversion process enables you to see how combining credits between the two systems will enable you to achieve your educational goals.

It is important to confirm the transfer policy of the institution you are transferring credits to in order to determine how previously earned credits will convert. Because transferring credits is widely practiced, the following general guidelines help illustrate credit conversions: 

Transferring Semester credits to Quarter credits

Quarter to semester Semester to quarter
3 2   3 4.5
6 4   6 9
12 8   12 18
15 10   15 22.5
30 20   30 45
45 30   45 67.5
 

Oregon State University has a transfer course search database of common classes that transfer in and the OSU-equivalent class. This search tool can help you feel more confident about the ability to transfer classes between institutions. Most colleges and universities also have a credit-transferring tool to compare credits course by course. Just search for "credit transfer" or "course equivalency" on your home institution's website. Also, many university registrars offer assistance with transfer credit evaluations.
