The Registrar's Office evaluates transcripts and prepares a Transfer Equivalency Report (TER) to determine the courses that are transferred to Colorado Mesa University. The TER is produced by the Registrar's Office after the student has been admitted and all official transcripts are received. It consists of a computer printed page showing course transfer equivalents but will not show how courses are used in the major program; you will need to see an advisor to determine how your courses will apply to a specific program or major. The TER can also be viewed on your MAVzone account under the Student Academic tab. If you have any questions regarding your Transfer Equivalency Report please contact the Registrar's Office at 970.248.1555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

"Satisfactory" or other non-letter grade will only be considered if the transcript key confirms that it is equivalent to a "C-" or higher on the grade scale. If a grade of “Pass” or “Satisfactory” is received and is equivalent to a “C-” or higher, but there are no credit hours attached, Colorado Mesa University will not accept the course. Transfer GPA is not calculated into CMU GPA.
