To request transfer equivalency for business courses that you took at your previous university or college, the following conditions must be met:
1. Only the following business course are eligible for transfer equivalency: AC221 Financial Accounting, AC222 Managerial Accounting, ES275 Management Communications, IM345 International Management, IS223 Introduction to Information Systems, LA245 Introduction to Law, OB221 The Dynamics of Leading Organizations, QM221 Probabilistic and Statistical Decision Making for Management, and QM222 Modeling Business Decisions and Market Outcomes.
2. You must have received a B or better for the course you are appealing.
3. You must have received Questrom elective credit for the course you are appealing. For example, if you took financial accounting at your previous institution, your transfer credit evaluation must show QST AC 2** credit equivalency for that course. This information can be found through your Student Link, under the Academics Tab, by clicking the External Credits & Test Scores Tab. If you took a business statistics course and received CAS MA 1**, CAS MA 115 or 116 the course can be reviewed for QST QM 221 or 222.
4. You may appeal for transfer equivalency only once per course, and you must do it in your first semester of enrollment in Questrom. The deadline of September 12th has passed for External Transfer Student who were direct admits into the Questrom School of Business.
Intra University Transfers to Questrom who are external transfers to Boston University and took business course prior to attending BU must submit appeal(s) within two weeks of receiving your IUT acceptance email and only have one opportunity to submit appeal(s) and have your course(s) reviewed. Appeals received after the two week deadline will not be considered. Appeals will be reviewed and students will be informed by the 15th of the following month.
If your appeal is granted, you will receive transfer equivalency and will not need to take the respective course. If your appeal is denied, you will retain the elective credit for your previous course but will need to take the equivalent Questrom course.
