General Studies Transfer Program

Transfer students who have earned an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS) degree from Nebraska Community Colleges meet all Peru State College general education requirements and enter the College with junior class standing (or if less than 60 hours, with all hours transferred).

Transfer students from an accredited institution who have completed courses equivalent to Peru State College’s General Studies courses meet the College’s general education requirements in that area. Remedial or developmental courses are excluded.

After the student has been fully admitted, the College completes an official evaluation to identify the applicability of previous work to the student’s expressed major and degree program.

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. All students must complete a minimum of 50% of the hours required for the major core requirements at Peru State College.

Students who seek admission and are accepted while on probation from their last college are placed on probation and are subject to all Peru State College policies of probation. Students who have been suspended from another college will not be considered for admission until the period of suspension at their previous institution has expired and the facts of the dismissal are provided.

Students who discontinue their attendance at Peru State College and then attend another college or university before seeking readmission are classified as transfer students.
