  • Enter your request for transfer credit via the online XCAT system using your PennKey and password. Be sure to include your course materials (syllabus, detailed course description, tests, quizzes, compositions). You can find XCAT along with instructions for using the system at .
  • The Undergraduate Chair will use your course materials from XCAT to determine whether or not to award credit for the equivalent level at Penn. You will see the department’s decision on your XCAT account by clicking on “list your requests.”


All XCAT requests will be reviewed individually; the French Studies Program does not recognize course precedents on XCAT. Please address any questions to the Undergraduate Coordinator or the Undergraduate Chair.
