The Transfer Equivalency search tool is a guide for prospective students to know how current, previous, or anticipated college courses may transfer to Puget Sound.
Transfer coursework to be completed after matriculation at Puget Sound (e.g., summer classes for continuing students) must be approved through the Registrar's Office.
Select the state and then the name of the college you wish to search.
Your college will have more transferable coursework than shown in this search tool. The equivalencies shown here only reflect courses that students transferred from your college in the past five years. If your course is not listed here, it still might transfer when we review your transcript. We are reviewing new courses and updating our database every term.
Please note: This database reflects historical transfer data and is not a guarantee that courses will transfer in the future. Please review the Advisory and Policy Notes below.
|Transfer Course||UPS Course||UPS Course Description||Cores Satisfied|
Core/Graduation Requirement Key

|HM - Humanistic Approaches Core||SL - Social Scientific Approaches Core|
|MA - Mathematical Approaches Core||NS - Natural Scientific Approaches Core (requires hands-on laboratory component)|
This tool reflects historical transfer data from students who have transferred in the past five years. If your coursework is older than that, from a school not listed here, or not listed under a school in our database, it may still be transferable, so long as it is from a regionally-accredited institution of higher education and liberal arts appropriate in topic/scope. We do not accept coursework designated as vocational or technical, remedial or retraining, focused on personal development, from professional disciplines not offered by the university, or that instructs in doctrine or ideology.
Historical transfer data is not a guarantee that courses will transfer in the future, but rather is provided for general guidance. Official evaluations of transfer coursework are conducted for transfer applicants after admission to the university.
Please see the Transfer Information section of the Bulletin for all policies related to transfer credit. The following is a brief list of the most common transfer policy concerns:
A transfer course may fulfill a Core requirement if it is equivalent to a Puget Sound core-fulfilling course, worth at least 3 semester hours or 4 quarter hours, taken for a letter grade (not graded pass/fail), and taken on-campus (not online) at the transcripting institution.
First-year and sophomore transfer students (those bringing in less than 15.00 units of transfer credit) may complete up to four Core areas via transfer credit, while junior transfer students (15.00-16.00 units transferred) may complete up to five Core areas via transfer credit.
Regardless of transfer credit, the SSI2 and Connections Core areas must be completed in residence at Puget Sound.
