Information for Transfer Credit Re-Evaluation (TCRE) Departmental Reviewers
Thank you for taking on this important role of reviewing transfer credit re-evaluation (TCRE) requests. Providing accurate and timely credit decisions enable students to work towards their academic goals at Carolina and register for appropriate courses.
Departmental Contacts Directory
The Departmental Contacts directory provides a list of faculty members who review transfer credit re-evaluation requests. In some cases, departments divide the work by subject area (e.g., Spanish, French) and/or course level (e.g., MATH courses numbered below 300).
- Undergraduate students submit an eForm request in their ConnectCarolina Student Center to have a transfer course re-evaluated for credit.
- The request is routed to the Office of Undergraduate Curricula (OUC) for initial review. If the eForm is incomplete, it will be routed back to the student for additional information.
- OUC will route completed eForms to the appropriate Departmental Reviewer, if needed, to record and approve a credit decision.
- Based on that credit decision, the eForm is routed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (for transfer credit updates) or to the Registrar’s Office (for Tar Heel Tracker updates).
- Students are notified when the eForm completes the workflow process.
Instructions for Students
Instructions for students who would like to have a transfer course re-evaluated can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions website.
