Policies and procedures for the transfer of credit from other colleges or universities are given in the Catalog. The information given below summarizes the policies and procedures, but may not be complete. Additional information is available from the Registrar.

All applications for transfer credit must be made as a written request on appropriate University forms and submitted to the Registrar.

Requests shall be accompanied by official transcripts or other documents verifying that the learning under consideration has been satisfactorily completed.

The Registrar will normally require, in addition to the documents above: catalogs, course descriptions, letters of verification, or other proof that provides a description of the topics and techniques studied, and/or verification of the experiences cited.

All transcripts from foreign schools must be evaluated, at the applicant's cost, by a recognized by

international education evaluation agency.

If sufficient satisfactory documentation is not available, the applicant will be asked to prepare a written description of the learning experience, and may be asked for additional information and documentation. The student may be eligible to take a challenge exam.

The completed request is submitted to the Registrar for consideration and approval by the Dean. If the Dean considers the request to be valid, the applicant will be notified whether or not a challenge examination is required and can be scheduled.

The challenge examination will be written, and may also include oral and practical sections. This is at the option of the Dean and the examiner. The examination will be prepared and graded (pass or fail) by the examiner. The examiner may recommend to the Dean a maximum number of units to be awarded.

The applicant will pay to the Registrar the required fee(s) at least 30 days prior to the date of the exam. This fee is not refundable. Requests for postponement for good cause must be received by the Registrar no later than 3 weekdays prior to the exam, except for personal illness.

If an applicant fails to appear for the examination, a failure is recorded. An applicant may apply for another examination to be scheduled, and must pay another fee, 30 days prior to the date of the rescheduled exam. An exam may only be rescheduled once.
