Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer credit is generally granted for courses comparable to those offered by the University that were successfully completed with a grade of “C” or above for Bachelor’s degree and a grade of “B” or above for Master’s degree at another institution accredited by an accrediting agency which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The University evaluates all credits/hours submitted by the transfer applicant and reserves the right to accept or deny any of the credits for transfer. Transcripts are officially assessed by the Academic Office after a transfer student has been formally admitted and has declared a major.

 

A qualified transferring course of three (3) units can be transferred into a four (4)-unit equivalent course at the University with a condition that the student is required to perform additional academic work to fulfill the one (1) outstanding or missing unit and to pay the appropriate tuition. A form for satisfying this requirement shall be filled out by the student, approved by the Academic Office, and submitted to the appropriate faculty for completion of this additional academic requirement. Upon completion, the faculty shall record a Pass (P) or Fail (F) grade of the student’s work on the form and submit it to the Registrar Office no later than the Add/Drop deadline of the following quarter. The Registrar Office shall place “TC” for the appropriate course on the student’s transcript only upon receiving a Pass grade for this one (1) unit requirement.

Transfer credit evaluation shall be completed within the quarter that the official transcript and TC evaluation request form was received. Transferring students must comply with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirement.

Transfer credits are counted towards the maximal length of study at the University. Twelve (12) quarter units for Bachelor’s degree and eight (8) quarter units for Master’s degree shall constitute one (1) quarter to be used in the determination of time limitations for graduation.

 

Transfer credit appears on a student’s academic record, and the units are included in the student’s cumulative earned units. Up to one hundred twenty-four (124) quarter units are accepted in transfer from another institution in Bachelor’s degree programs. Up to sixteen (16) quarter units are accepted in transfer from another institution in Master’s degree programs. All transfer credit is recorded as “TC” on the student’s record. Transfer credits are not calculated in the student’s cumulative grade point average.
