What is Transferology?

Transferology is a free, online tool to help students predict how courses will transfer.  Transferology can be used to predict how courses will transfer into the College, as well as searching for courses offered at other institutions that will transfer back to the College.

Transferology contains a history of how courses have transferred to the College of Charleston.  It does not represent a comprehensive list of transferable coursework from all schools.  It is designed to be used as an unofficial resource to identify potential transfer credit and associated College of Charleston course equivalents.  It is neither an official determination nor a guarantee of transfer credit award. 

Course transferability and equivalents are subject to change.  Changes may be made at any time without prior notice due to curriculum changes at the College of Charleston or the transferring institution. 

The Registrar's Office will complete a formal evaluation of transfer credit after students' official transcripts are received.
