Current students are strongly advised to obtain pre-approval of any courses they plan to take at other institutions for transfer to Allegheny. To have the course evaluated for pre-approval, please submit a completed Transfer Credit Approval Form to the Registrar’s Office before registering for the class. Note that you will need to obtain the signature of your advisor and of the appropriate department Chairperson on the form – the Chair will need at least a course description from the other institution in order to determine the Allegheny equivalent. The course must also meet all of the requirements described in Allegheny’s criteria for transfer. Please be aware that students may not take courses at Allegheny and at another institution during the same term (see the Concurrent Enrollment Policy).
Once you have completed the course, arrange with the institution where the course was taken to have an official transcript sent to: Office of the Registrar, Box 41, Allegheny College, 520 N Main St, Meadville, PA 16335. Please note that you must achieve at least a “C” in the course; courses with grades of C-minus and below are not eligible for transfer.
