International Incoming Freshmen and Transfer Students

I have been accepted into Mines.  How will my post-secondary credits be applied?

We currently accept credit for AP (Advanced Placement), IB (International Baccalaureate), and Advanced Level examinations.  To see how those credits will be applied, please look at our Advanced Credit website.  If you have taken once of these exams, we will need the official score report before any credit may be applied.  University level coursework is evaluated on a course-by-course basis and an initial evaluation will be sent to your email as specified on your application.  If you do not have an evaluation, please contact

I have sent my coursework, but I haven't heard back on what will transfer.  What should I do?

First and foremost, it is recommended that you check your email to see if your evaluation has already been completed.  Otherwise, the following will prevent awarding of credit:

  1. A high enough grade was not achieved
  2. A transcript verification was not submitted. These verifications will always be requested by email so please contact if you are unsure whether your transcript needs to be verified.
  3. A course is in progress and a final transcript was not yet sent.
  4. It has been determined that the coursework is not university level or remedial.

Why don't my credit hours match?

Semester hours are determined on a per University basis through AACRAO IES guidelines.  ECTS hours are always 2 hours to 1 semester hour. Contact if you have questions regarding the conversion.

When do I register?

Freshmen will register themselves following information sent to their mines email account after submitting their intent to enroll.  Transfer students will be registered by the Registrar's Office and schedules will open for changes once the initial schedule has been built to the guidelines on Transfer Student Registration website.

I have a question not listed here. Who should I contact?
Please email if you have any questions.
