Transfer Credit Policies

Transfer Credit Policies
 
Prior college-level courses completed with a final grade of "C" or higher may be transferred to the College's curriculum.  Required laboratory science courses (Anatomy & Physiology I & II, and Microbiology) have a five-year limit for transfer.  General education courses have no time limit. Transfer course credits are not included in the student's grade point average (GPA). 
 
Applicants who wish to validate college science credits older than five years may challenge them through Excelsior College. A grade of "C" or higher is required. Challenge examinations must be within the five-year limit.
 
The Registrar/Bursar reviews individual transcripts for appropriate transfer and placement within the curriculum.  The applicant is responsible for submitting an official transcript and the individual course description (if requested).  
 
Students who take Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school will receive credit if they receive a grade of 3 or higher.
