Understanding the Transfer Credit Report The transfer credit report shows all credits that a student receives externally from other institutions, tests, and life or work experience credit. The Transfer Credit Report is broken down into 3 sections: Course Credits, Test Credit, and Other Credit. Course Credits

The course credits section shows all courses that have been transferred from all external institutions and how those credits transferred to UNLV. It also shows whether this test score, once evaluated and articulated to a course, can be used toward General Education if it is not a one to one match but a generic elective course number. To see applicability to a degree program, you will have to run an Academic Advisement report once the student has matriculated.

Field Description Career Graduate, Undergraduate, etc…

Program The College a Student is admitted to. Credit Source Type External means the credit did not come

Test Credits The test credits section shows all test scores, except SAT and ACT, that a student

has taken and if they were given credit or not for the test score and what course that test score equates to here at UNLV. It also shows whether this test score, once evaluated and articulated to a course, can be used toward General Education if it is not a one to one match but a generic elective course number. To see applicability to a degree program, you will have to run an Academic Advisement report once the student has matriculated.
