GO Long Transfer Credit

Important items to remember during your time away:
  • You must be enrolled in at least 12 U.S. credits through the other university/program to maintain your full-time status (this is especially important for financial aid). 
  • When you arrive at your off-campus destination, you must confirm your schedule with the Registrar’s Office.  If any of the courses were not previously approved, you must make arrangements to have them evaluated for transfer.  
  • Your degree audit is available on mySU to reference for graduation requirements. During your semester away, your degree audit will reflect a 12-credit “off-campus semester” course specific to your GO Long program/location regardless of the actual number of credits you enroll in through the other university/program. 
  • Grades of C- or higher are necessary to transfer your credits into Susquehanna. 
  • Grades do not transfer so your Susquehanna GPA will not be affected in any way (except for those students studying through the Lutheran College Washington Semester or SWSB London). Note for SWSB London students: Students on the SWSB London program take a set schedule of courses and do not need to have the courses approved for transfer, however, the grades you receive in those courses do transfer back and affect your Susquehanna GPA.
  • We will transfer the number of credits that you earn for a course as they appear on the official transcript (ex: if you earn 3 credits for a course, we will transfer 3 credits – regardless of how the course was approved to transfer). 
For your reference, pre-approved courses will be made available to you during the semester prior to departure, when you are working through the course transfer process. The lists will be in your GMS application Learning Content.
