Course Description

How to Transfer Credits

What is Credit Transfer?
Credit transfer refers to the process(es) by which educational institutions assess incoming credits earned elsewhere and determine whether or not to accept them. It is important to note that the acceptance of transfer credits is determined by the home institution of the student.

Transfer credit policies may differ from institution to institution. Accordingly, our expert advisors work with students one-on-one to guide them in seeking approval for courses, thereby making credit transfer as smooth and efficient as possible.

Credit Transfer Requirements

When approving a course, a home institution will consider a number of factors. Often, for example, students are asked to give information regarding a host/provider institution's program, such as a link to the official website, course syllabus, class hours, location, etc. The home institution will decide whether or not to accept transfer credits based on the information provided.

Key assessment criteria for evaluating whether credit will be transferred include:
Student information

The home institution will determine if the student is eligible for credit transfer. Information collected and evaluated typically includes such info as school year, GPA, number of credits earned, and whether the student has taken prerequisite courses, among others.

Accreditation of the program host/provider

The home institution will consider program host/provider accreditation to assess that institution's qualifications and whether the quality of instruction meets the home institution's requirements.

Course content

It is important to make sure that the course is equivalent to a class at the student's home institution and meets the school's course requirements. This information is crucial when a student needs to transfer credits for a specific curriculum since it determines whether the course will be covered.

Course Approval

-Course approval is a key component of credit transfer.
Pre-course and post-course approval are the two types of course approval procedures:
Course Pre-Approval refers to a home institution assessing before you enroll in an external course whether the potential transfer credits you will earn are likely to be accepted. The course will be evaluated to see if it meets your home institution’s transfer credit requirements. If the course receives pre-approval, you can take the course with more confidence that you will be able to successfully transfer the credits after completing it.
Course Post-Approval refers to a home institution assessing after receiving an official transcript from the institution where the course was taken whether or not to accept the transfer credits for an already-completed course. With Post-Approval, you do not know in advance whether a potential external course matches your intended course at your home institution, or whether your home institution will accept transfer credits. Thus, with Post-Approval, there is a higher risk of failing to transfer credits.
