DePaul’s Transfer Articulation Center (TrAC) reviews your files, undergraduate coursework and determines its transferability to DePaul – posting credits to your record.
Understanding Your Posted Credits
What do “TRNS, 4RVW, No Rule and Rejected” mean?
TRNS: You will receive credit for your course, but it won’t apply specifically toward any school or college at DePaul.
- 4RVW: A faculty is evaluating whether this
course is equal to one at DePaul. You will receive transfer credit for
all courses that are listed as 4RVW regardless of whether or not the
course meets a specific DePaul equivalency. You may need to provide a
syllabus in order for a decision to be made.
- No Rule: No action has been made and additional
information may be necessary. If you see "No Rule" in the early stages
of your admittance into DePaul, chances are that the course has yet to
be reviewed. If you see that a course is "No Rule" after a majority of
your courses have been posted and you are currently attending classes at
DePaul, chances are there is information missing that you need to
provide. Review your Transfer Credit Report in Campus Connect for
additional information on what may be required by you in order to make
an articulation decision.
- Rejected: TrAC has determined that the course
is either not comparable to the academic objectives of DePaul University
or is not a course we accept in accordance with the DePaul University
transfer policies. No credit will be awarded.
Some of my course equivalencies don’t look like normal classes. What does it mean if it says something like ART TR200?
When a course you’ve taken does not match up to a DePaul course, but we
find it is transferable and applicable to a specific DePaul department,
we will make the course transferable into that department (in this case,
ART) based on the level of the course (in this case, 200), and whether
the course is transferable to DePaul’s Liberal Studies program.
This means that a 200-level Art course may also be applicable to the
Arts & Literature General Education requirement and be listed on
your record as a general 200-level course that satisfies a Liberal
Studies program requirement.
Why didn’t I earn liberal studies credit for my course?
TrAC looks at several factors when determining whether or not a course
will count as a Liberal Studies course. The most important factor is how
closely the course meets the goals and objectives of DePaul’s Liberal
Studies program and, specifically, the goals and objectives of the
Common Core or Learning Domain requirements.
At DePaul, Liberal Studies courses and Learning Domains are the same as “general education” courses.
Transfer Credit for Current Students

If you have questions about how courses apply to your major, time it
will take to complete your degree or how to transfer into another school
or college at DePaul, please wait until you’ve completed orientation.
