Transfer Credit - Evaluations Office
Transfer Credit Evaluation
An official transfer credit evaluation, summarizing prior college credit and indicating completed Sacramento State general education requirements will be prepared by the Evaluations Office for first-time Sacramento State transfer students. The results of the evaluation is available via the Degree Progress Report online at My Sac State.
Questions about the evaluation should be discussed with the Academic Advising Office located in Lassen Hall, Room 1012.
All courses, except remedial, are accepted for degree credit from institutions awarding four-year degrees.
Credit is reviewed by the Evaluations Office and is granted in compliance with applicable national, state, Title V, CSU system, and University policies and procedures. Such credit may be applied toward fulfillment of major, minor or general education requirements when applicable; other courses may count as elective credit toward the baccalaureate degree. This credit will be listed in summary form on the Sacramento State transcript of academic record.

- reflecting acceptance of grade point remediation for repeated courses, and
- regarding "incomplete" grades (e.g. I, IS, and IU).
All transfer course grades or symbols used to designate unsatisfactory, failing, or non-passing work at time of withdrawal such as UW, WU or WF are evaluated as failing grades (F) unless otherwise defined by the source institution.
