Transfer Credits

Image Picker for Section 0

All transfer credits taken before admittance to the University of Delaware must appear on your UD transcript before they are evaluated by an academic department. The UD Registrar's Office posts the transfer credits. If you don't see the transfer credits on your UD transcript, please contact the Registrar's Office.

Once you've confirmed that your transfer credits are on your transcripts, different procedures are in place for 1) requesting that a transferred English course fulfill UD's ENGL110: Seminar in Composition requirement and 2) requesting that transferred English courses equate with other UD English courses.

Finally, students must formally request that coursework taken after admittance to UD be accepted as well.

How to Request ENGL110 Credit for a Past Course

ENGL110 Seminar in Composition is the only required course of all undergraduate students at the University of Delaware. Transfer students who have taken a comparable course at another institution may apply for exemption from the ENGL110 requirement. To qualify for an exemption, the course must be a rhetoric/writing and composition course studying primarily non-literary sources and be posted to a student's UD record as "ENGL166T - Transfer Elective." Credit for ENGL110 cannot be gained from AP exams in English or through dual or concurrent enrollment.

To request an ENGL110 transfer exemption review, you must complete an online application and upload supporting documentation. Before starting this process, be sure to have electronic PDF versions of the following documents:

  • Your unofficial UD transcript
  • A complete syllabus of the previously taken course
  • An official course catalog description of the previously taken course
  • A brief paragraph describing the course you are requesting to be reviewed and explaining why you think the course is equivalent to UD's ENGL110

Once you have these documents at hand, please submit an ENGL110 transfer review request. Your request will not be processed if you do not enter all of the required information. Please allow up to four weeks for a response. If you have questions about the application form, please email the Composition Program

How to Request Credit for Other Courses

Students may request to have transferred English courses be equated to UD English courses other than ENGL110. To do so, email transfer evaluation requests to the associate chair, Professor Miranda Wilson. In the request, please include 

  • your name, student ID number, local phone number, and UD email address;
  • a PDF copy of the course syllabus from the course you took; and 
  • an official course catalog description of the previously taken course. Be sure to identify the university that offered the course. If the course catalog description is available online, you can submit a printout of this or send the link via email.

How to Request Credit for Post-Admission Courses

All transfer courses taken after admittance to the University of Delaware must be approved by UD before students enroll in the course(s) at another institution.* You must

If the course from the other institution is listed on the transfer credit matrix, that means it has already been evaluated by UD and the UD equivalent course has been confirmed. The transfer course will not be re-evaluated and will not be equated to a different UD English course. You do not need to submit your evaluation to the English Department. Instead, you submit it directly to the office of the Assistant or Associate Dean in your College.      

If the course from the other institution is not listed on UD's transfer credit matrix, please submit your transfer credit evaluation form in person to Professor Chris Penna in Memorial Hall, Rm. 044. This form should include

  • your name, student ID number, local phone number, and UD email address;
  • a scanned copy of the syllabus from the course you plan to take; and
  • a scanned copy of the course description in its official catalog. Be sure to identify the university that offered the course. If the course catalog description is available online, you can submit a printout of this or send the link via email.

*The English Department does not "pre-approve" courses for ENGL110 transfer equivalency. Please refer to the transfer matrix for ENGL110 transfer equivalencies.
