Only courses with an earned grade of C or better (i.e. not C- or CD) will be considered for transfer credit. Evaluation of transfer credit is based on official transcripts from the institution where the course was completed and final grade was issued.
Transcript Review Process
- Once your official transcript is received, please allow one to two weeks for an initial review of general education credits.
- You will receive an email via your student email account with details on how to view awarded credits.
- To request additional review of general education and/or program related courses, please complete and submit the Transfer Credit Evaluation Request Form (PDF, 892 KB) and include course syllabi. Please allow a minimum of one to two weeks for this additional review to be completed.
- If you have international transcripts that need to be translated and/or evaluated, please see our International Student Admission page for list of translation and evaluation services. Once your transcript evaluation/translation is complete, you may submit the Transfer Credit Evaluation Request Form (PDF, 892 KB) for us to review for eligible transfer credit.
