transfer information

Transfer Information

The following information serves as a guide to assist you in planning for your transfer to Southeast.  Every effort is made to keep the information as up-to-date as possible. Advisors at both your current institution and at Southeast should be consulted each semester for new changes that may not yet be reflected here.

To help you identify how courses from selected colleges will transfer to Southeast Missouri State University, transfer course equivalencies are listed in the database below. Course equivalencies may change at any time without notice and are continuously being developed. Southeast Missouri State University reserves the right to make changes in transfer equivalencies at any time. For regionally accredited colleges, if a course is not listed, it will be evaluated for course equivalency at the time of transfer.  Courses taken through a community college, while transferable, will not grant senior division credit regardless of course number used in transfer. Credit from regionally accredited institutions is accepted to the extent that it counts toward a transfer degree in the institution where it was earned. Ordinarily, vocational/technical courses will not be transferable. In addition, all grades transfer (including failed grades) and count toward the transfer and overall GPAs at Southeast. If a course is taken more than once, only the most recent grade is counted in GPA.

To request approval in advance for a course not found in our transfer course equivalencies database, complete and submit the Request for Approval of Transfer Credit form located here. University athletes MUST obtain approval in writing before enrolling in courses to transfer back to Southeast.
