Know if I am eligible to take classes at Cuyahoga Community College or another 2- or 4-year college?
  • CSU students who are interested in taking classes at a community college should be aware of transient rules. If students have earned under 60 credit hours, they are eligible to take up to 8 credit hours as a transient student at a community college. For this, students need an advisor’s written approval on a Transient Permission Form prior to taking the class. (The form allows the credits to be transferred back to CSU.)
  • Students must be in good standing to be qualified for transient status.

  • CSU students who have between 60-90 credit hours, who are in good standing, can take a course at a four-year institution as long as they are in good standing and have not exceeded the 8 hour limit of transient credits. If there are special circumstances surrounding the need to take a class elsewhere, the student can submit a university petition to the college.

  • Students who have over 90 credit hours should not take a class at any other institution until they have completed a university petition.

 

 

Get permission to take a course outside of CSU?
  • Students need an advisor’s written approval on a Transient Permission Form prior to taking the class. The form allows the credits to be transferred back to CSU. Meet with your advisor to get help filling out this form.

 

 

Find what courses I can take outside of CSU?
  • If planning to take a course at another institution, students can consult with an advisor to know which specific courses will apply to their degree. Or they can check our transfer guides if they plan to take a course at an area community college.

  • Students should make sure they are aware of transient rules before taking a class elsewhere. Taking a class outside of CSU does not mean it will transfer back to CSU. See this answer.

See what courses transfer to CSU? 
  • For area community colleges, students can consult one of our transfer guides. For information on other colleges, they can ask a college advisor.

 

 

Know what other University credits will transfer to CSU?
  • Students should be mindful that as long as an institution is accredited, the credits will typically transfer in to CSU.

  • However, there is a difference between credits transferring in and credits applying to degree requirements.

  • Consult with the transfer guides or an advisor to find out which specific classes at another institution will apply to the degree requirements at CSU. Keep in mind that there may be pre-requisites for classes at another school that are not required at CSU.

 

 

Know why my transfer classes are not counting toward my degree?
  • Students who have transferred courses from another institution may have taken courses as part of an associate’s degree or certificate that are not part of the degree program they have chosen at CSU.

  • Over the course of time, students also may have been undecided about their major and taken classes that apply to a different major. These situations may result in students seeing transferred classes that do not apply to their current major.

  • Students who have transferred from another college or university may also see that some courses have not been assigned an equivalency at CSU. This is indicated by “CSU 1XX” or “CSU 3XX” on the CSU transcript. In this case, CSU does not have an established equivalency for the course taken.

  • If the student feels that the course would likely be equivalent to the CSU course (at least 80% of material covered is the same), they can turn in a course syllabus to the WCE website requesting review for a specific course. 

 

 

Know if my transcript was received?

CampusNet→ Student Tab → Transcript → Display Unofficial Transcript


 

 

Know WHEN to send my transcripts to ensure they show up in CampusNet?
  • If students are planning to transfer to CSU but are currently in classes at another institution, they should send one copy of their transcripts when they apply. Applications are not processed until the initial transcript is sent.

  • Then, they should send another copy of the transcript after your grades post. Ideally, this will be at least four to six weeks prior to the beginning of their starting term.
