Transferring Credits

Transferring Undergraduate Credits

 

An undergraduate student may file a request for transfer credits with the Academic Office. The student may transfer up to 134 quarter credits earned from other colleges and universities. These credits must have been taken at the undergraduate level. However, the Vice President of Academic Affairs has the discretion to determine the quality, content and transferability of credits from another school. No credits are transferable for any course in which a grade is below a "C". Transfer credits evaluated by an independent agency and approved by the Vice President of Academic Affairs will become a permanent part of the student's record.

 

Transfer of Graduate Credits

 

A graduate student may file a request for transfer credits with the Vice President of Academic Affairs. The graduate student may transfer up to 8 quarter credits (i.e., the equivalent of two classes) earned from other universities. Units transferred must have been taken at the graduate level within the past ten years. However, the Vice President of Academic Affairs has the discretion as to the quality, content and transferability of credits from another school. In any case, no credits are transferable for any course in which a grade is below a "C". However, a graduate student must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0. Consequently, for every "C" grade transferred or earned, the student must earn an "A" to maintain an acceptable 3.0 GPA. Transferred credits evaluated by an independent agency and approved by the Vice President of Academic Affairs will become a permanent part of the student's record.
