2015-16 Undergraduate Academic Catalog | Admissions

Transfer Admission

An applicant seeking admission to Roberts Wesleyan College after previously studying at another post-secondary institution will go through the regular admission procedure (application for admission with completed personal statement, transcripts of college work completed or in progress, and a personal recommendation). An official transcript must be sent to the Associate Vice President of Undergraduate Admissions from the Registrar of all institutions previously attended.

For students from regionally accredited colleges and universities, credit is usually accepted for courses in which the grade is C- or above and is approved by The Office of Registration. Developmental courses, pre-college courses, and courses in some disciplines will be excluded. Course work from institutions not regionally accredited will be evaluated by the Provost, who will determine, within guidelines set by the College, how much, if any, credit can be awarded. Correspondence credits from accredited institutions may be accepted within limits set by the College. Transfer credit from baccalaureate degree programs is limited to 90 semester hours plus three hours of physical education credit. This includes advanced placement credit and credits earned through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).  Credit earned in a graduate or postbaccalaureate degree program cannot be applied to an A.S., B.A., or B.S. degree.

If it is determined that an incoming student would benefit from academic support and guidance, he or she will be limited to 12-14 semester hours (full-time status) and may be required to meet with Learning Center personnel during his or her first semester. Such students will be reviewed by the Academic Guidance and Support Committee following the completion of the first semester to determine the necessary level of support needed for the next semester.
