1. How do I transfer my CSI credits to another institution?

In order to transfer your CSI credits to another institution, students need to send an official CSI transcript to that institution. Students can request an official transcript online through MyCSI or they can complete a paper request form and return it to the Admissions and Records Office.

2. Do CSI courses generally transfer?

Accredited CSI college-level courses (number 100 or above) are accepted by most colleges and universities in the United States. Students should check with the institution they wish to transfer to determine exactly how CSI course work will be accepted.

3. What is the maximum number of credits I am allowed to transfer?

Check with the institution you wish to transfer to about the limit on the number of credit hours they will accept. This is usually about 70 credits.

4. If I complete my general education requirements at CSI and become core certified, will I have to take general education requirements at the school I transfer to?

If you are transferring to a public college or university in Idaho and you are core certified, you will not have to take additional core courses unless your program of study requires specific core classes you have not taken. If you are transferring to a private college or university or to an out-of-state public college or university, your general education courses may be evaluated course by course and you may be required to take additional general education courses. Your transfer institution may ask you for a course description and/or a course syllabus to determine how a course transfers in. Because of this, students are encouraged to keep the course syllabus of the courses they have taken.

5. How soon should I start preparing to transfer from CSI?

It is never too early to start preparing to transfer from CSI. Knowing what courses are required at the school you wish to transfer to may affect which courses you take at CSI. It is also important to give yourself time to research your different transfer options.
