Transfer of Credit

In to RMU

RMU accepts transfer of credit from other institutions; however, credit is only accepted if it is relevant to the degree pursued. View our Transfer of Credit Agreement.

Out of RMU

RMU coursework is designed for your success at Robert Morris.  RMU credit may transfer to other institutions; however, all transfer of credit is evaluated by the receiving institution.  Credit transfers best when evaluated as part of an earned degree; course-by-course credit is typically more difficult to transfer to and from any college or university.
