Welcome to the PLU Interactive Equivalency Guide. With this tool you can explore how classes from other colleges and universities transfer to PLU. Whether you’re thinking about applying to PLU or you’re a current student, this guide can help you plan for meeting General Education elements and specific major or minor requirements.

We’re frequently adding new schools and classes, so be sure to check back if what you’re looking for is not here. It doesn’t mean a particular class can’t be transferred. You can also reference our list of equivalency guides for Washington community and technical colleges not yet featured in this guide.

Are you a future student with questions about your courses and how they transfer to PLU? Find your Admission Counselor. This guide is meant as a reference to help you in your planning. If you’d like an official evaluation of transferable credit, submit a free PLU Admission Application.

Current PLU students, please contact the Registrar’s Office or your academic advisor if you have questions about transfer credit. In addition to transfer credit equivalencies, currents students can use this tool to determine PLU semester Study Away equivalencies. In the case of Study Away, the credit granted is PLU residential credit. Refer to the Study Away policies through the Wang Center for Global and Community Engaged Education for detailed information regarding credits and grading.

How it Works

Use the arrows on the menus below to narrow your search by state and institution. The list will include all classes that have been reviewed and determined to be transferable or not. To further limit your results to only include specific classes, use the check boxes left of the transfer class information. This will allow you to produce a personalized list on a new page. Click the envelope icon to email this personalized list to yourself or anyone else.
