The Seattle Pacific University Transfer Course Equivalency Guide has been designed to show you how credit from other institutions and approved testing programs will transfer to SPU. Whether you are thinking about applying, have already been accepted, or are a current SPU student thinking about taking summer courses elsewhere, this system will make the transfer process easier for you!
Current SPU students must seek approval from their Undergraduate Academic Counselor and complete the Study Away Application prior to registering for a course at another institution or taking an exam through a testing program. Courses in the equivalency guide are not guaranteed to transfer without prior approval. Completion and approval of the study away application verifies that the course(s) a student has selected will apply to the SPU degree. Students are strongly encouraged to check in with Student Financial Services when considering transferring credits to SPU, as it may have financial aid implications. Complete information regarding Seattle Pacific University's transfer policies can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog.
Students who begin classes at SPU after completing an approved Direct Transfer Agreement associate degree have fulfilled all University Core and Exploratory Curriculum requirements, as well as the general education foreign language requirement. Courses listed as non-transferable may transfer as part of the DTA degree. An associate degree completed after matriculation at SPU will not be recognized.
Note: Some approved Engineering courses may not apply toward the
Electrical Engineering major due to ABET accreditation. Please see
the Electrical Engineering Department Chair (http://www.spu.edu/depts/ee/).
