Transfer Credits-Requirements and Limitations

Credit is given for courses in which the student earned a final grade of “C” or better [“C-” and below does not transfer].

Credit transferred from other schools is limited by the following restrictions:

  1. no more than half of the credits URI requires for graduation can be transferred from two-year institutions;
  2. students must earn at URI at least one-half of the credits required for a major, at least one-half of the credits required for a minor, and at least one-fourth of the credits required for graduation;
  3. only grades earned for course work at URI are included in the calculation of a student’s grade point average. Additional requirements exist for numerous majors.  Refer to the website at uri.edu/admission/transferacademics.
