ECE Transfer Students Guide
to Transfer Credit Evaluation
Step 1: Make sure all credit is received at OSU
Have an OFFICIAL transcript from all colleges/universities you’ve attended sent to:
The Ohio State University
Undergraduate Admissions
P.O. Box 182646
Columbus, OH 43218-2646
If you have taken Advanced Placement (AP) Tests, also have those scores sent to OSU.
Contact the College Board at 1-888-225-5427 to request scores. OSU’s school code is 1592.
OSU Testing Center number is 614-292-2241 if scores were sent but not posted.
Step 2: Gather Information
Gather syllabi with titles and authors of textbooks as well as copies of tables of contents. Sometimes the actual
textbooks are requested by faculty evaluators at OSU to make appropriate course evaluations. For international
students requesting transfer evaluation of ECE courses, textbooks and syllabi are required.
Step 3: Look up your DARS Transfer Credit Report on BuckeyeLink and Print Several Copies
This report will give you an indication of what courses have transferred as direct equivalent courses and which ones
need an additional evaluation through the appropriate academic department. Courses that begin with “S”, “T” or “G”
will need an additional evaluation from the respective department and this report needs to accompany your request.
To find your DARS Transfer Credit Report go to www.buckeyelink.osu.edu
To help you understand this Transfer Credit Report and more helpful information about transfer credit
processes, go to: http://registrar.osu.edu/transfer_credit/index.asp
Step 4: Refer to the Department Credit Evaluators for Further Evaluations if Needed
Following is a link to a list of frequently used Departmental Evaluators that will help you determine your final transfer
credit. Additional evaluators for other courses can be found at: http://registrar.osu.edu/transfer_credit/tcc_list.asp
 For ECE students, the most important evaluations to find out first are mathematics and physics followed by
computer science, engineering graphics, introduction to engineering, and chemistry. If you have ECE transfer
courses, you will want to wait until all the above courses are evaluated before contacting the appropriate ECE
Department Transfer Coordinator.

semester. When an evaluation is completed, you will be notified by e-mail or phone as to when and where you
can pick up any textbooks or original materials.
The following information is required for each course being evaluated:
1. A copy of DARS Transfer Credit Report from BuckeyeLink.
2. A copy of the course catalog description from the original institution.
3. A copy of the course syllabus indicating the following:
a. Topics that were covered in the course
b. Textbook(s) used. For students requesting transfer evaluation of ECE courses from college/universities
outside the United States, textbooks and syllabi are required.
c. Amount of time spent on different topics.
d. Number of hours of lecture/recitation per week and number of laboratory sessions, if any.
4. To help facilitate the transfer credit evaluation, evidence of the standard of the work may be submitted.
Examples of evidence include copies of examinations and assignments.
5. A cover letter accompanying these materials indicating (1) your OSU email address, (2) your quarter of
admission into OSU, (3) your intended major, and (4) the OSU ECE course(s) for which department transfer
credit is requested. Please do not submit material expecting the advising office or faculty to determine the
