Transfer Credits and Class Substitutions

PSU accepts successfully completed, college-level transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions.

Criminology and Criminal Justice accepts several types of undergraduate transfer course substitutions to satisfy certain program requirements. The number of transfer credit substitutions allowed varies by the undergraduate specific program. For the CCJ bachelor’s degree program, students may satisfy up to 20 credits with transfer course substitutions. For other certificate programs, see the specific certificate program page for transfer course substitution information.

Equivalent Courses Substitution Requests

Students who have completed similar criminology and criminal justice coursework at a regionally accredited institution may request a course substitution review for one or more courses.

Preapproved Community College Substitutions

For undergraduate students who have attended an Oregon community college, CCJ has pre-approved specific courses to automatically substitute for certain CCJ classes. Find your community college for the list of pre-approved transfer substitution courses. In the lists below, LD stands for “lower division.”
