Transfer Policies

Policy on Transfer Credit for Students Holding an Associate Degree

Transfer students who have been admitted to the College as matriculated students and who have completed an associate degree at a regionally accredited institution may be granted at least 60 semester hours. For these students, grades of D may be accepted for transfer if necessary but may not be applied toward the major. In no case can more than 72 semester hours be accepted from colleges authorized to grant only an associate degree. Transfer students are expected to meet all graduation requirements for the major and in general education, including all residence requirements. CLEP credits are considered part of the 72-credit maximum.
