Welcome Transfer Students!

Welcome to the History Department at the University of Utah. We are excited to have you!

We have research opportunities, a History Student Association, and an annual student conference. Please meet with an advisor to help you plan your courses.

Transfer students to the University from within the state of Utah should access the in-state transferrable credit check list below to see which courses are already eligible for transfer consideration. If a course is not included in the list, students will need to petition for transfer credit.

All petitions for transfer courses must first be approved by the Office of Admissions before the Department of History can consider them. Once courses have been approved and appear on the DARS report, students can begin the petition process with the History Department. To petition the Department for transfer credit, students must schedule a meeting with the advisor. They must bring with them a completed petition for transfer credit and copies of syllabi for each course in question. Both the syllabi and the petition will be submitted to the advisor, who will forward all materials to the appropriate members of the faculty for consideration. The Department may take up to a month to evaluate transfer petitions. history@utah.edu.

PLEASE NOTE:  The requirements listed as being satisfied in the following tables are for this major only.  If you change majors these courses may not clear requirements for your new major.
