Approval for Course Taken at Another Institution

Approval of a course taken at another institution for Anthropology transfer credit at Princeton

See ODOC advising for general information.

If you are planning to take an anthropology course at another educational institution for Princeton University transfer credit, you will need to get the course reviewed and approved by the director of undergraduate studies in the Anthropology Department.  Instructions are provided in the Anthropology Supplement to the ODOC approval form.

You will need to gather required documents:

  • The ODOC approval form
  • Course information: title, description, instructor, rank of instructor, course schedule, class hours; generally as much information as you can get. (Note: To be approved, an anthropology course must be taught by an instructor with a doctorate. A course taught by a graduate student or an "ABD" will not be approved.)
  • A course syllabus and/or reading list

Please use the Approval for a Course Taken at Another Institution - Department of Anthropology Supplement to find detailed instructions on how to make your request. Questions about the instructions may be directed to [email protected]. Please plan ahead and allow at least 48 business hours for review and reply from the Anthropology Department.
