Transfer Equivalency Tables
The following table includes all the established equivalencies that the University has approved. Please use it to determine how your transfer work might come through on your USC record. Please note that these equivalencies are not guarantees and all degree applicability needs to be discussed with your college/school advisor. Please be advised, this data is subject to change and is constantly being updated.
Please keep in mind the following:
- UNEL (University Elective Credit): Credit that is not department specific. This is usually used for courses that do not fit within an existing USC department.
- HUMA (Humanities): Credit that does not fit into a specific USC department but that is based in the Humanities.
- SSCI (Social Sciences): Credit that does not fit into a specific USC department but that is based in the Social Sciences.
- SCIN (Natural Sciences): Credit that does not fit into a specific USC department but that is based in the Natural Sciences.
- REME (Remedial): Remedial courses are courses taken at a level below those offered at USC.
- TECH (Technical): Technical courses are courses taken at a 2-year technical school.
- NACC (No Credit): No-credit courses are courses that are neither remedial nor technical, but that do not earn USC credit.
- TRAN SFER (Transfer): Courses that transfer into the University of South Carolina but have not yet received a USC equivalency. Actual equivalencies will be assigned to the transfer course by the Office of the University Registrar as soon as the equivalency determined by the appropriate department.
- If a course is coming in as elective credit, you will see an equivalent of 00XT where x = a number to indicate the level. For example, if a course comes in as ANTH 003T, it counts as a 300-level Anthropology elective.
- If you are earning elective credit, the title of the course will usually indicate that with the use of the term "elective" in the course title field followed by the original subject, number and title of the course that has been transferred to USC.
