Transfer Credit Process
Students who have applied to UND’s College of Engineering and Mines with a minimum
of 24 credits from other institutions will undergo UND’s transfer equivalency process.
During this process, the Registrar’s Office and advisors in the College of Engineering
and Mines work with faculty to determine if any courses that a student had taken previously
may apply to their intended degree at UND. More information on transfer policies can
be found on the Registrar’s Office Transfer Site.
Once a student has been admitted, the Registrar’s Office utilizes the Transfer Equivalency System (TES), to find equivalency determinations for any course previously evaluated by faculty at UND. Once that is complete, an advisor in the College of Engineering and Mines works with faculty to determine equivalencies for any course not listed in the TES database. During the transfer review process, students may receive requests for course descriptions, syllabi, or detailed schedules to assist faculty in making their determination. Once the review is complete, a professional advisor will reach out to the student to set up an initial advising appointment.
Course equivalency requires courses to be comparable to the UND course the topics align with, including in topics covered and prerequisites required. The decision to grant equivalency is done by the faculty, and faculty reserve the right to allow or deny equivalency based on criteria specific to their department.
Due to institutional policies, transfer credit reviews cannot be completed for any student who has not applied and been admitted to UND. If a non-admitted student wishes, they can explore TES to see if any of their taken courses have already been evaluated for equivalency.
