Transfer Guides to UCM


We want to make the transition as smooth as possible. Work with our transfer coordinator as soon as you enroll at a community college. We will help you to make sure you are enrolling in the correct classes even before you are ready to transfer to UCM!

Use our transfer guides to your advantage!  UCM has a number of resources available to you to make your transition as easy as possible. Use our transfer guides along with our academic advisors and transfer coordinator to make sure you are enrolling in the right classes at your community college. Also, you can check our database of thousands of classes to check on an equivalency. Let us help make your transfer to UCM great!

These guides are based on the UCM 2019 Undergraduate Catalog and are subject to change. These guides are a recommendation only and your actual program may vary. Time to degree completion and course sequencing will depend on any credits transferred to UCM and on planned placement in math, reading, and writing. Refer to the UCM Undergraduate Catalog complete listing of academic policies, curriculum, prerequisites, and course descriptions.

Students who hold an Associate in Arts Degree, an Associate of Arts in Teaching degree, or have met the Missouri 42-hour General Education Core (CORE42) requirements are considered to have fulfilled all UCM General Education requirements, except specific general educations classes required by the major.  Lists of General Education Requirements can be found on The General Education Program page of this catalog.

Upper-level credit is coursework completed at the 3000 and 4000 level. Hours earned as SC or CR credit (AP/CLEP/IB/military credits/work experience/prior learning) do not count towards upper-level credit. Transfer credit will retain the leveling as designated by the original granting institution regardless of whether a UCM equivalent’s leveling is different. All courses taken at a two-year college and any 1000/2000 level courses taken at a four-year institution will not be applicable toward upper-level hour (3000/4000 level) requirements, even if these courses are articulated to upper-level UCM courses or used as substitutions for upper-level UCM courses.

Candidates for a bachelor’s degree must complete a minimum of:

  • 120 total semester hours
  • 30 total semester hours of upper-level credit
  • 12 upper-level hours must be in the major subject

Residence requirements establish a minimum number of credit hours which must be earned from UCM. Online courses and courses which are offered off campus but through UCM do count towards residence hours. Hours earned as SC or CR credit (AP/CLEP/IB/military credits/work experience) do not count towards residence hours.

A candidate for any bachelor’s degree must have earned the following minimum hours in residence at UCM:

  • 30 hours overall
  • 20 upper-level hours (3000/4000 level courses)
  • 15 hours in the major
  • 9 upper-level hours in the major
  • 9 hours in the minor (if applicable)
