Course credit transfers from another school

I would like to take a course at another school. How can I transfer that course to Notre Dame and receive credit.

The transfer of course credit is determined by the deans in the Office of Undergraduate Studies in the College of Arts & Letters and by the Department of Art, Art History & Design. The department reserves the right not to approve transfer credit for courses. The student must first discuss the course with the deans in the Office of Undergraduate Studies before arranging a meeting with the Chairperson of the Department of Art, Art History & Design. The criteria for the Department of Art, Art History & Design’s pre-approval of transfer credit from another institution are as follows:

  • the course must be pre-approved by the Chairperson of the Department of Art, Art History & Design
  • courses must be taken at an accredited four-year university
  • a summer course should be approximately six weeks in length
  • the course must be taught in a department that is similar to the Department of Art, Art History & Design
  • the student must produce: the course title and the number of credit hours assigned to the course
  • a brief course description
  • the instructor’s name and credentials
  • a copy of the course syllabus
  • the contact hours for the class (length of academic term, number of class meetings, duration of each meeting)
