Transfer Credit Evaluation

Morgan State University and the School of Community Health and Policy (SCHP) welcome students who would like to transfer from a regionally accredited community college or four-year college or university. 

The Transfer Evaluation and Articulation Team is responsible for the evaluation of coursework from other colleges, Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) scores.  The Transfer Evaluation System (TES) and ARTSYS may be used to obtain an unofficial indication of how courses from other colleges will be accepted for transfer credit at Morgan State University. 

It is important to keep in mind that the TES is an unofficial course evaluation tool. Morgan State University will make an official determination of transfer credit acceptance after you are admitted to the university and official transcripts from all of your previously completed coursework have been received. The system is dynamic and is continually updated as courses are reviewed. Use this guide to learn how to use the Transfer Equivalency System. If you have a question about credits transferred, please contact


Important Considerations

  • Acceptance into Morgan State University does not guarantee that transfer credits are equivalent to SCHP program coursework or admission into the upper division of an SCHP program.  Additional GPA and prerequisite requirements may apply.  See SCHP section of the catalog or contact concerning coursework taken at other schools. 
  • Late admission into Morgan State University following the opening of course registration may affect the timely articulation of transfer credits and your ability to enroll in needed courses to complete your degree. Prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to adhere to admission and course registration deadlines set by Undergraduate Admissions and the Academic Calendar
  • Transfer students must follow the University catalog active upon admission.  Late course registration, selecting courses off-sequence, taking non-degree applicable courses, or not earning credit for prerequisite coursework can prevent or delay meeting catalog requirements for your program. 
  • Transfer credits are not included in the student's grade point average (GPA) computation except for use in the upper-level Nursing Program admissions requirements.
  • Some science coursework older than 5 years may not meet Nursing major degree requirements. 
  • Official transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution's records office either by mail or electronically through a secured transcript service approved by Morgan State University. Please note that official transcripts sent by students from their official MSU email account as attachments will not be accepted as official.
  • It is the student's responsibility to make sure that they are awarded the correct number of transferable credits. If there is a dispute in the number of credits awarded, students should contact

How to Submit an Official Transcript to Undergraduate Admissions
