Bringing Credit to Baylor
Baylor University accepts dual credit (if completed while in high school) and transfer credits from regionally accredited and foreign institutions.
- To receive credit, courses must come from a regionally accredited school, a student must earn a C or higher, and Baylor must have an equivalent course. Credit will be given for these courses, but it will not apply to the Baylor GPA.
- All coursework taken at another college is evaluated for equivalent transfer credits. This means that a course is evaluated based on whether it will transfer to Baylor or not. It does not take into consideration if a course applies to a specific degree plan. To determine which courses are considered to be equivalent to Baylor courses, use the Equivalent Course Tool (ECT).
- Some Texas colleges and universities participate in the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). These courses are referenced in the Baylor Undergraduate Catalog.
- To determine if the equivalent course applies to a specific degree requirement, refer to the Undergraduate Catalog, Major Academic Planners (MAPs) or the appropriate college or school. This is the student's responsibility.
