Transfer of Course Credits from Outside PSU
PSU Requirements for Credit TransferIn order to transfer credit from courses taken outside of PSU, the student must use the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS).
PSU will only award transfer credit for a course if that course has not already been counted as meeting requirements towards a previously awarded degree. For more detailed information about PSU credit transfer and degree requirements, please contact Admissions and Registration directly. Transferred credits recorded by the Office of the Registrar will appear on the student's transcript. The transferred credits will be listed along with the names and numbers of corresponding PSU courses.
Department of Applied Linguistics Requirements for Credit TransferPlease note that even if the Office of the Registrar has marked the transfer credit as "corresponding to" a particular class listed in the Applied Linguistics Course Bulletin, no transfer credit can be granted toward an Applied Linguistics degree until the Applied Linguistics faculty adviser has approved the specific transfer course content.
The Applied Linguistics adviser will evaluate the course description for each proposed transfer-credit course (or combination of courses) and determine whether an Applied Linguistics degree program required course can be replaced with the transfer credit course. If PSU-accepted transfer credit is determined to not satisfy the course content requirements, the student will be obliged to complete the required course. However, any transferred credit which is listed on the student's PSU transcript does automatically count towards PSU institutional graduation requirements. The student is responsible for providing the adviser with the documentation necessary to do this evaluation (university course catalog, official website addresses, etc.).
