35 Equivalency Matrix Disclaimer The Equivalency Matrix is designed to be a resource to identify potential transfer credit and associated University of Belize course equivalents from completed course work at other academic institutions. This database is provided as a service for students wanting to know whether the course(s) they are taking or plan to take will transfer to the University of Belize. The database is for reference only and is continually being updated as new courses are evaluated. It is neither an official determination nor a guarantee of transfer credit equivalencies. All information contained within this Matrix is subject to change, without prior notification. Final course equivalency is determined by the university's academic departments. Courses not appearing in the Matrix may transfer, but most likely have not been evaluated yet. Current UB students desiring an evaluation of courses not appearing in the Matrix should follow up with the Records Office. Credits for college-level courses must be completed with a grade of "C" (2.0) or better.
