The College places significant limitations on credits taken at other institutions. The Department Chair and the Registrar must approve all transfer credits for current students.
A current student who wishes to take a class at another college must complete a Request for Course Approval form available in the Office of Registration and Records. The form must be signed by the appropriate Department Chair and approved by the Registrar. The Request for Course Approval form must be completed prior to registering in the course. It is the responsibility of the student to provide course descriptions and/or information about the college if requested.
Undergraduate students must receive a grade of "C" or better for transfer credits to be accepted. Graduate students must receive a grade of "B" or better for transfer credits to be accepted. Students need to submit official transcripts to the Office of Registration and Records once the course is completed.
The maximum number of transfer credits are as follows:
- 63 credits for undergraduates students with the catalog year of Fall 2014 and after
- 68 credits for undergraduate students with the catalog year prior to Spring 2014
- 15 credits for graduate students in Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Public Practice
- 12 credits for graduate students in Writing
Students who enroll in a class at another college without completing the Request for Course Approval Form prior to enrollment do so at their own risk. You must complete the Request for Course Approval form to have the credits considered for transfer, but there is no guarantee that the credits will be accepted. The Department Chair and the Registrar will determine whether the credits are acceptable for transfer.
All prospective applicants should direct their questions about transfer credits to the
