Curious as to why a transferred course was given an XXL designation?

When a course is transferred in from another institution, but there is no equivalent Ohio University course, these credits are assigned an XXL designation. For example: you completed “Biology of Sponges,” a 200-level course at another college, but Ohio University does not have a course on the exact subject matter, so the transferred credits are evaluated as BIOS 2xxl instead of being assigned an OHIO course number. BIOS 2xxl would count in the A&S 60-hour 2000 level and above requirement, and the A&S Natural Science requirement.

So if your transfer credits do not match an exact course, they may be applied differently than initially planned. Please feel free to contact me at conradk@ohio.edu should you have any questions regarding xxl credits that have transferred in from other colleges and universities.
