Lehigh University Study Abroad: Policies-Credit Transfers-Lu Faculty Led


  • Students must complete the Registrar's Office Approval of Transfer Credit form prior to leaving campus.

  • Pass / Fail courses are not acceptable for transfer.

  • Courses taken at a two year or four year institution where a grade lower than a “C” has been earned will not transfer. (C- or below will not transfer).

  • Transfer courses may not be used to delete a prior “D” or “F” grade from your cumulative grade point average at Lehigh University.  Transfer grades are NOT calculated in the Lehigh GPA.

  • Only those courses listed and approved on this form will transfer.  Any student taking courses different from those listed may risk having the course not be eligible for transfer credit.

  • No student may receive more credit at Lehigh than was granted on the host institution’s transcript.  Courses taken on the quarter system will have credit granted on a 3-2 ratio, and no partial credit will be awarded.  The student will receive credit equivalent to the number of credits indicated on the transcript, up to the number of credits for the equivalent course at Lehigh.  The registrar has the final authority for the amount of credit awarded toward a Lehigh degree.

  • No credit will be granted for a course in which the student has already received credit for its equivalent at Lehigh.

  • No credit will be granted for continuing education unit courses, courses taken on-line, January or intersession courses, correspondence, independent study, or any course less than 5 weeks and/or 15 contact hours per credit without approval of a petition to the Standing of Students Committee.

  • Courses taken while in high school may require additional documentation.  All questions should be directed to the registrar.
