Transferring Courses

Below is an incomplete list of institutions from which USciences transfers credits and an incomplete list of courses that transfer into USciences. If you do not find the institution or course you are looking for, it does NOT necessarily mean that USciences does not accept credits from that institution or that USciences does not transfer that course.  The database below is not comprehensive; USciences adds institutions and courses on a weekly basis.

If your school or courses are not on this list, please feel free to submit this form to request evaluation of your courses.  You may email or fax this completed form along with your transcript or course information.  Our email address is transfer@usciences.edu and our fax number is 215-596-8821.

USciences Transfer Credit Guidelines

  • Courses are reviewed on a course-by-course basis.
  • Transfer credit is usually granted for comparable coursework completed at an accredited college or university.
  • In most cases, a grade of “C” or better must be achieved and the coursework must meet the specific requirements of the applicant’s program of study.
  • Science courses must include at least 1 credit hour of lab work.
  • Credits earned for the first half of a two-semester course sequence will only be accepted for transfer if the second half is successfully completed (e.g., General Biology I will only be accepted for transfer if General Biology II is successfully completed).
  • There is a ten-year limit on the transferability of science and math courses.
  • Pre-professional courses completed 10 or more years prior to enrollment may not be accepted for transfer credit or may require additional validation by the University.
  • Credits earned taking professional level coursework are not acceptable for transfer.
  • In most cases, class year is determined by the number of credits USciences accepts for transfer.  For example, those transferring 0-30 credits=first year, 31-60=second year, etc. Exceptions may include professional programs (DPT, PharmD, DrOT)
  • Transfer students who have previously earned a Bachelor’s degree have satisfied all General Education requirements
  • The PA program (BSHS/MSPAS) does not allow transfer credit to be awarded for the following courses: Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology,  Clinical Immunology, Hematology, Medical Terminology, Organic Chemistry, Pharmacology, or Scientific Writing.

Accepted students receive a preliminary transfer credit evaluation (TCE) that includes the courses and credits acceptable by the University for transfer. (We do not provide this evaluation prior to acceptance.)  If a particular course has been completed successfully, but hasn’t been determined to be equivalent to a course offered at USciences, it still may be accepted for credit.  In these instances, the USciences course number will appear on the TCE as X01 or X10; e.g. PS X01 could be used to label a particular psychology (PS) course taken at your school that is not offered here at USciences.  This allows you to fulfill graduation requirements with courses outside of USciences’ usual offerings.
