Transfer Credit

Transfer Credit Evaluation

Students with general (G000.0x) or technical (T000.0x) transfer credit can request that the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department further evaluate previous coursework.  A successful request will allow students to receive a course substitution, course equivalency, course waiver, or eligibility for credit by examination. For further details about the transfer credit evaluation process, please contact an academic advisor. 

Students who are considering transferring from another institution to Ohio State often have questions about how previous coursework applies to degree requirements. Detailed information regarding the transfer credit process can be found here.


Transferology is a valuable tool for transfer students who wish to see how previous coursework will correlate to OSU degree requirements. Most equivalencies from this site will cover basic math and science courses, General Education courses, and in a few instances, Statics (MECHENG  2010), Mechanics of Materials (MECHENG 2020) and Dynamics (MECHENG  2030). 

Submitting a Transfer Credit Evaluation Request

The following items should be included in the Transfer Credit Evaluation request:

  • Course Syllabus and Course Description 
  • Textbook Title and Author 
  • List of Course Topics
  • Current Transfer Credit Report 

Samples of exams, quizzes, and homework may be required at a later date. ​Please expect 2-4 weeks to receive a decision.
