AP and Transfer Credit

AP Credit

Transfer Credit

For incoming students, a transfer credit evaluation is completed as part of the application process. Credit is granted by your academic department for coursework that is related to your intended program, provided it is taken at a regionally accredited college or university.   A grade of “C” or better is required for transfer credit to be awarded.

Current students may take classes elsewhere and transfer the credit to RIT, provided the student has obtained pre-approval from the head of their program (or, for most General Education courses, from Liberal Arts Student Services) and the coursework is taken at a regionally accredited college or university. Pre-approval must be documented in writing.  A grade of “C” or better is required for transfer credit to be awarded.  When the coursework is complete and graded, it is the student’s responsibility to request an Official Transcript be sent to the RIT Registrar’s Office at this address:

Rochester Institute of Technology
Office of the Registrar
George Eastman Building
27 Lomb Memorial Drive
Rochester, NY 14623-5603

Students must adhere to the RIT Residency Requirement to meet graduation requirements (no more than 10 of the last 30 semester credits towards your degree may be earned through transfer credit)

Please direct questions regarding transfer credit to your academic advisor.
