Transfer Course Equivalencies

Butler University has pre-approved many courses from other colleges and universities that are transferable to Butler for credit. The list of institutions/courses is not comprehensive, and serves only as a list of courses previously evaluated by the Butler University registrar. Courses not listed still have the potential to transfer for Butler University credit. If you don’t see your institution listed or if a course you’re interested in doesn’t appear on a course equivalency sheet, please contact the Butler Office of Registration and Records at

Courses that are completed at a regionally accredited institution, are 100 level or higher, and in which you’ve earned a C- or better will be eligible for transfer credit evaluation. Transfer credits may be applied toward the Butler Core Curriculum, toward the major, and/or toward electives.

Special note regarding transfer admission and the COVID-19 pandemic:

Butler University is taking special care in individually reviewing transcripts to ensure transfer students are not penalized by their inability to earn letter grades for academic classes during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The University will take into account the current institution’s spring 2020 term grading policy along with grades for the semester and performance in prior semesters.

Many colleges and universities are providing a Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit grading scheme for the winter, spring and summer terms in 2020—sometimes with no other grading alternatives for students. In light of this, Butler University has temporarily suspended its policy that limits transfer credit for coursework in which a letter grade is awarded. Courses taken with Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit grading in the winter, spring and summer terms of 2020 will be considered for transfer credit evaluation on a case-by-case basis.

Disclaimer: Course equivalencies provided through this website are unofficial and are intended solely as a guide for prospective transfer students. These equivalencies are NOT applicable for current Butler students. Current Butler students wishing to transfer credit into Butler should follow the process outlined at Butler University reserves the right to make changes to any course equivalency at any time without notice due to curriculum changes at Butler University or the transferring institution.
