Explanation of Transfer Equivalency Evaluation


BIOL 108 Course transferred as a specific FSU course.
NC No credit, coursework below the 100 level does not count toward graduation.
GCR 100
General credit, 100 level course or higher. You will need to provide a course syllabus or catalog description before a more specific evaluation can be made.

All other codes indicate non-course specific credit and how they can be used.  Other non-course specific equivalencies:

Subject name = General credit in that subject not equivalent to any specific FSU course but applicable to graduation in the appropriate general education category.


ANTH3-G General Anthropology credit, 300 level course, Global component.
HIST History general credit, may be used for graduation in cultural enrichment category where HIST courses satisfy the requirement.
BIOL1ZL Fulfills 100 level scientific understanding (biology) with lab component.
HUMN2 Humanities credit, 200 level course.

If your academic program requires a grade of C or above in a particular course to become eligible for your program or to graduate from your program, you will need to repeat the course.

Specific program equivalents will be determined by the department at FSU with comparable coursework as indicated by the Ferris course designator.

Credit is granted only once per course.   If the course is repeated, the most recent grade is accepted.

When two or more courses at another college equal one at FSU, the FSU equivalent will be listed after only one course in the sequence.   If you have taken only one part of a sequence, you will receive elective credit until the sequence is completed.

Credit may be granted for military training courses, group study, or correspondence work if the course(s) or other work is recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) or approved through an appropriate Ferris competency assessment process.

International transcripts must be evaluated, by student arrangement, through the FSU Office of International Affairs.   Contact the Ferris State University Office of Admissions (231) 591-3915.
