Hello! Congrats and good question. It all depends on what major you were before and what major you plan to transfer to. I was a business major and a communications minor prior to transferring into Howard University’s School of Communications. I was able to transfer approximately 40 credits. The credits were a combination of communications credits from my prior minor, general electives, and AP credit from high school.
Fight for every credit you can get. Here’s a pro tip for getting your credits:
Howard wants to know that the classes you have taken are comparable to their courses. Make a list of every college-level class you have taken (and, what to transfer) and write the course descriptions from your school’s official website below each course. This will help you when you meet with advisors to discuss credits because they will be able to compare to Howard courses right quicker. It takes out some work for them and helps you prove your case.
