Transfer Equivalency

Mercer University General Education Courses and Core Curriculum Courses
for the University System of Georgia Institutions

This information serves as an equivalency guide to students planning to transfer credits from the University System of Georgia Institutions to Mercer University. This is not an official document. You will receive a definitive transfer credit evaluation only after your application for admission has been received and the Registrar's Office reviews official copies of your transcripts.

*Equivalencies presented here must include laboratory experiences and may require other stipulations. Also, courses from the University System of Georgia may not be numbered the same for all institutions, therefore, be sure to refer to course titles and descriptions. If your transfer course is not listed with a specific Mercer equivalent, one may be determined during the official review of your transcript or you may receive elective credit for the course.
