Transferring College Credit

Students may transfer up to 72 college level credits from regionally accredited community colleges and all college level credits from four-year institutions; however, at least 30 credit hours of coursework must be completed at Shepherd University in order to earn a bachelor degree. Several weeks post-admission, transfer students who have submitted official transcripts will receive a degree evaluation illustrating how their credits were transferred and applied to their major.

Transfer Evaluation System

Students who are transferring from a partner community college can benefit from using our Transfer Evaluation System which shows equivalents of Shepherd courses at these other institutions. To access the articulation agreement tool, visit

To ensure transfer courses are applicable towards a Shepherd degree, students are encouraged to consult with our Office of Admissions while still enrolled at their current institution. You can email or call 304-876-5212.
