Policy research on Credit hours:

USF Policy 10-065: Credit hours, Alternative Methods... DRAFT - NOT APPROVED

Research Information for Credit Hour Policy - 10/3/16 policy meeting:

UC Irvine: 
Bologna Process - University of Bologna 3 year degrees may be accepted for French and German students.  http://www.grad.uci.edu/admissions/applying-to-uci/international-qualifications%20.html 
Three-Year Degrees:  UCI may accept 3 year degree from UK or British style universities
Comptency-Based Credit: 
Couldn't find evidence of competency-based learning degrees at UC Irvine. And no mention in Graduate Catalog.  The attached article was written by someone at UCI about the approach.

SUNY Univ of Buffalo: 
The University at Buffalo welcomes applications from qualified international students. Application information regarding specific programs may be obtained by contacting the academic department in which enrollment is desired. Applicants presenting international educational credentials must possess a university degree that is recognized as equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree prior to beginning graduate study. International applicants must meet the following requirements imposed by University policy and by U.S. Immigration Service regulations.
A bachelor's degree (or higher) or the equivalent from an accredited/government recognized college or university. Most such degrees will be four or more years in length; UB recognizes some three-year degrees, but not all;

University of Pittsburgh:
International Student Academic Requirements and Credentials
The minimum requirement for admission to a graduate program is the completion of a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States or the completion of education that the University of Pittsburgh deems comparable to a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States.
Applicants are required to submit official original academic credentials. Official original academic credentials that are issued in a language other than English must be accompanied by a certified English translation. In cases where the transcript (grade report, academic record, examination results, mark sheet) does not attest to the awarding of a degree or an academic qualification, a certified copy of the original certificate or diploma awarding the degree or qualification must also be submitted. Certificates or diplomas that are issued in a language other than English must be accompanied by a certified English translation.


University of Kansas:
Each graduate program at KU determines the materials needed for making admission decisions. Click here to find information about required supporting documents. This is the same information displayed on page 4 of the application.
• Regular admission requires a bachelor's degree and a grade-point average of at least a B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) from KU, regionally accredited institution, or foreign university with substantially equivalent bachelor's degree requirements. The bachelor's degree is not acceptable if it contains credit awarded for work experience that was not directly supervised by faculty members of an accredited university or not evaluated in units that identify the academic content.
Proof of a bachelor's degree (plus any post-bachelor's coursework/degrees) is required, as well as proof of English proficiency for international applicants and domestic non-native English speakers. Individual programs will have additional admissions requirements. Go to the Application Requirements page for more information.

University of Colorado:
Acceptance of Non-U.S. Degrees from Institutions of Higher Education
The University of Colorado Boulder requires that a bachelor degree meet the four year minimum requirement after 12 years of primary/secondary education (total of 16 years' of education). Bachelor degrees that are three years in length, usually completed after 12 years of primary/secondary school, will not be recognized as equivalent to a U.S. four-year bachelor degree by the University of Colorado Boulder. Countries that have secondary school programs ending after year 13 or higher will have the three-year bachelor degree recognized as equivalent to a U.S. four-year degree (total of 16 years of education). Countries with secondary school programs routinely ending prior to 12 years will be reviewed on an individual basis.
For applicants to a graduate program (master's or doctorate), the Office of Admissions will complete a credential evaluation of any degree completed by the student and forward it to the department to which the student is applying. Regardless of whether or not the Office of Admissions considers the degree to be equivalent to a U.S. four-year bachelor degree, the department will not be prevented from reviewing the application.
If a department wishes to admit a student with a three-year degree that is not considered equivalent to a U.S. four-year degree, a provisional admission is required. The standard Graduate School provisional admission process must be followed.
Australia, Bologna Process countries, Canada, India, Israel, South Africa, and Sri Lanka are just some of the countries that have three-year degrees that may be evaluated as not equivalent to a U.S. four-year degree.

University of Arizona:
Please look at this website, which is the most specific one I have seen so far:
https://grad.arizona.edu/tools/intladmissionsreqs

University of Virginia:
Credit From Foreign Institutions
The University of Virginia grants credit for courses taken at recognized foreign tertiary-level educational institutions. Foreign educational institutions that are chartered and authorized by their respective national governments (generally through the Ministries of Education) are considered “recognized.” Credit is awarded for courses judged to have been completed at a C level or above. The amount of credit granted does not exceed that given for the comparable University course. The University of Virginia applies the general guidelines for awarding credit given by the National Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Student Credentials and the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs.
Credit By Examination
The University of Virginia participates in the Advanced Placement Examinations Program of the Educational Testing Service and the International Baccalaureate Examination Program. Students who receive grades deemed satisfactory by the academic unit to which they seek admission may receive academic credit. The University does not participate in the College Level Examination Program, the College Proficiency Exam, or the USAFI and DANTES programs of the United States Military Forces.

University of Georgia:
UG has a country specific list of requirements, found at:
http://grad.uga.edu/index.php/prospective-students/international-application-information/international-supplement/country-specific/
For example, this is what they say for India:
U.S. Bachelor’s Equivalency: A three-year bachelor’s degree is not equivalent to the U.S. bachelor’s degree. A four-year bachelor’s degree, a three-year bachelor’s plus a master’s degree, or a three-year bachelor’s plus completion of first year of the master’s program from a recognized institution by the Association of Indian University (AIU) or All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
