Transfer Credit

University policy requires that of the 122 minimum required credit hours for an undergraduate degree, at least 60 hours must be earned as SMU credit.

Prior to matriculation to SMU: Credit may be awarded for college courses a student takes if the courses meet the criteria for transfer work.

After matriculation to SMU: Students may transfer a limited amount of credits to SMU from accredited, four-year colleges and universities. To ensure in advance that a course taken at another accredited college or university will transfer and that proper credit will be awarded, the student should work with their academic advisor to submit the necessary petition.

For more information on transfer credit policy, please check the Enrollment and Academic Records page in the Undergraduate Catalog.
