Credit Transfer Process

In order to successfully transfer your study abroad credits to Kent State, you need to have completed the TCP Form (Transfer Course Planning Form) for each term you were abroad. For students participating in an academic year abroad, one TCP Form must be submitted for fall semester and a second TCP Form must be submitted for spring semester. It is critical that you correctly filled out your TCP Form; failure to have a properly completed form will cause delays and issues with the credit transfer process. 

If you enrolled in classes that were not listed on your approved TCP Form, you will need to fill out and submit an additional TCP Form with the correct courses. Please note that while it is possible to get courses approved upon return by filling out another TCP Form, there is no guarantee that those courses will be approved to transfer back. 

Ultimately, it is up to you, the student, to make sure the transfer process was completed, and all paperwork was filled out properly. 

Upon receipt of your international transcript(s), the Office of Global Education will process your transcript(s) and your TCP Form.  These documents are sent to your academic department for final review.  From there they are sent to the Registrar to get posted to your Kent State record. The credit transfer process can take 2-4 months, so please be patient during this process.
