Transfer Credit Evaluation

Transfer credit evaluation is performed after admission and only when official transcripts are received from regionally accredited institutions. For Advanced Placement (AP), CLEP and foreign credit evaluations and equivalencies, see the External and Foreign Credit page.

If you have not been admitted to Benedictine University Mesa, please see the Admissions Requirements.

If you have not requested that official transcripts be sent to Benedictine University Mesa, please contact the college or university you attended and request official transcripts be sent to:

Benedictine University Mesa
225 E Main Street
Mesa, AZ 85201

NOTE: transcripts are only considered official if sealed in the original envelope from the issuing institution.

Once you have been admitted to Benedictine University, your transcripts will be evaluated using criteria set forth by the Transfer Credit Policy. The total number of hours transferring and course equivalencies in the skills, core electives and major areas will be determined. Department chairs may be consulted when determining equivalencies in the major credit and cognate section. Syllabi may be requested for further evaluation in some cases. Please send syllabi to advisingcenter@ben.edu.

As part of the evaluation process, a major checklist specific to your declared major is created, listing only the transfer credit that applies to the requirements listed. There may be courses included in the total number of hours accepted that may not appear on your checklist simply because they do not satisfy a specific requirement. These hours will count towards the 120 semester hours required for graduation with a bachelor’s degree.

Transfer credit is then posted on your transcript according to the decisions made at the time of evaluation. Once you are registered for courses, you can view your transfer credit and the corresponding equivalencies under the “view my transfer credit report” link on MyBenU.

If additional coursework is completed after the initial transfer credit evaluation, or you have completed courses over the summer at another institution, it is important to send an updated transcript to Benedictine University so that it can be evaluated and posted accordingly. It is important to submit all updated academic information promptly since the absence of this information can affect prerequisites during registration and financial aid packaging. Hours in progress are not included in an official evaluation.

Only courses taken at Benedictine University will be included in the Benedictine grade point average (GPA). Courses taken at Benedictine University can only be retaken at Benedictine University. See the Course Repeat Policy in the University Catalog for additional information.

The Office of Transfer Credit Evaluation strives to maintain accuracy, consistency and integrity during every transfer credit evaluation, and makes every effort to research the courses completed. If you have questions regarding the transferability or equivalency of your transfer coursework, please contact us at (630) 829-1120.
