How Transfer Courses Are Evaluated & Avenues for Appeal
Evaluation to determine BU course equivalency is based on course content as described in the course description in the catalog of the sending institution. This evaluation is performed by the graduation and transfer specialist, who consults with academic chairpersons as needed.
If the student or the sending institution disagrees with the course evaluation, a course syllabus may be submitted for review, or a request to substitute the nonequivalent course for a BU requirement may be made. The student's academic chair makes the decision on the substitution request.
Transfer Equivalency Guide for Prospective Baker Students
Baker University’s Transfer Equivalency Guide below is intended to show prospective students how courses may transfer. This information is not a guarantee or contract. This is not an official evaluation of your transfer work and should be used as a guide only. Course evaluations are date sensitive and change over time.
Courses transferred from other four-year institutions will be designated upper or lower division according to the original institution’s numbering system. Courses from two-year institutions will be designated as lower-division courses. Remedial courses do not transfer as degree credit.
Coursework that has no direct equivalent is coded as elective: 1++, 3++. Review “note” icon for additional information regarding a course. Courses not listed may not have been previously evaluated or will transfer as electives and may be substituted for specific requirements if determined appropriate by the student's academic chair.

Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Exploitation, Relationship & Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, & Stalking (Title IX)
Sexual misconduct and assault, including rape, are violations of Baker University’s Standards of Conduct for Students and its sexual harassment policy as well as violations of the Kansas Penal Code. Members of the university community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
When accused students are found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be imposed. This policy is intended to define community expectations and to establish a mechanism for determining when those expectations have been violated. The sexual orientation and/or gender identity of individuals engaging in sexual activity is not relevant to allegations under this policy.
While a number of laws and regulations mandate how universities handle allegations of sexual misconduct and assault, it is impossible to set forth every scenario that could be a violation of this policy. Ultimately, the university has the discretion to determine whether or not the policy has been violated and impose appropriate sanctions for infractions.
For information on policies and procedures, such as filing a complaint, please view Baker University's Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Stalking and Retaliation policy (Title IX, Title 9).
