Transfer Equivalency Guides
Baker University accepts credit from all regionally accredited U.S. institutions. BU also accepts military course credits evaluated by the American Council on Education, AP and CLEP examination credits. Transfer of credit is subject to the following university-wide limitations:
- Baker will accept up to 12 credit hours of technical courses completed at other accredited institutions.
- Transfer grade points are not included in the calculation of the Baker University GPA.
- Transfer courses in which a grade of C- or higher was earned are accepted for credit.
- Remedial courses do not transfer as degree credit.
How to Transfer Your Credit
Request that a final official college transcript from any college or colleges you have attended be sent directly from the registrar of that college to Baker University, Attn. Enrollment Department, 7301 College Blvd., Ste. 120, Overland Park, KS 66210. Baker University also accepts certified PDF transcripts sent to incoming.transcripts@bakerU.edu.
Students with college work in progress may be admitted provisionally based on an official but incomplete transcript; however, an official transcript must be submitted before the end of the first Baker course showing completion of the hours in progress. An admission decision is subject to review if the final transcript reflects a change in academic standing.
How Transfer Courses Are Evaluated & Avenues for Appeal
Evaluation to determine course transferability is based on course content as described in the catalog course description of the sending institution. This evaluation is performed by an admission and transfer credit specialist.
If the student disagrees with the course evaluation, a course syllabus may be submitted for review, and a final decision will be made by the admission and transfer credit specialist.
Transfer Guides for Prospective Students
Baker University’s Transfer Guides are 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.

Loan deferments and verification of enrollment and school status are the most common requests. Requests are processed as quickly as possible. However, you should allow four or five business days for completion of a typical request. If you need the Secretary of State Apostille’s seal on a certified document, it may be subject to a processing fee and you should allow 30 days for processing.
