Comprehensive credit transfer policy
A maximum of 90 semester credit hours from a regionally accredited four-year college or university and extra-institutional sources may be applied toward the minimum 120 semester hours required for a bachelor's degree. Of these 90 semester hours, a maximum of 66 semester credit hours may be from a community/vocational/technical college or other extra-institutional sources. To be considered for possible transfer, courses must have been completed with a grade of "C" or higher from an accredited institution.
Credit for life experience
Students may earn college credit for some experiences and accomplishments outside of the normal college setting. Credit may be granted through standardized examination programs (e.g., CLEP, DANTES, APP), the credit recommendations of the American Council of Education, and/or an evaluation of an individual portfolio or an examination by an academic department of the college.
