The academic policy of the College of Arts & Sciences permits the transfer of credit earned at other colleges and universities while in high school if:
- The course is one for which credit would normally be awarded.
- The course was taken at a fully accredited college or university.
- The course was not part of a high school/college dual credit program and the course was:
- a bona fide college course taught on the campus of a college or university
- enrolled primarily by duly matriculated college students--i.e. high school graduates
- taught by a regular college faculty member
- The course was taken after the junior year of high school.
- This course is not on the high school transcript and did not count toward the high school diploma.
All conditions must be satisfied in order for a course to qualify for credit. If any one condition is not satisfied, the College of Arts & Sciences will not award credit.
The maximum total of transferable credits from AP and/or college courses is 15.
Evaluation of credit will not be done unless all three documents are received.
