Thomas Jefferson University

Transfer Admissions

Center City & Abington-Dixon Campuses

Thomas Jefferson University has general and articulated agreements with more than forty colleges and universities. General agreements allow students to begin their education at the school of their choice and take the courses they want, including the prerequisites they need for Jefferson.  Articulated agreements allow students to plan a seamless transition into upper division graduate programs at Jefferson while still in high school or during the freshman year in college.

Our Transfer Equivalency Guides are specific to our partner schools with which we have general and articulated agreements.  Transfer credit evaluations are completed for other institutions by request.

Transferring Credits

Transfer credit is evaluated by the Office of Admissions and Academic Program Directors.

Courses completed at a regionally accredited institution with a grade of C (C = 2.0) or better will be reviewed for consideration. Additionally, courses must be equivalent in content and learning outcomes offered in the corresponding curriculum at Jefferson.

Courses completed over 10 years ago will be evaluated by Program Directors. Major courses that are 10 years old will likely not transfer. Transfer courses evaluated for credit from institutions with different credit systems, (i.e. quarters, trimesters, credit units) will, wherever possible, be equated with the University’s semester system of credit.

Jefferson does not limit transferrable credits; however, 60 credits must be completed at the university to earn a Jefferson degree — 12 credits must be applied towards major requirements and 9 must be applied towards general education requirements

Academic programs may have unique transfer credit policies that differ from the criteria outlined above. Please contact the Office of Admissions at 215-503-8890 or for specific information on your program.
