Policy on Transfer Credit
To be eligible for transfer credit, official transcripts must be submitted to the Office of Admissions by the end of the student’s first quarter of study.
Kendall College accepts transfer credits from colleges and universities accredited by agencies recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE), United States Secretary of Education, College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DSST and Advanced Placement (AP).
The college accepts courses with a grade or grade point average value of C or 2.0.
Transfer credit is evaluated in relationship to the desired degree program. Only credit which is applicable to the degree program requested will be accepted in transfer.
General Education requirements and electives will be assessed by the Office of Admissions. Major requirements will be assessed by the Office of Admissions in consultation with the Program Dean or Chair. The total amount of transfer credit will not exceed the necessary residency requirement of the desired degree program. Courses which are remedial or developmental will not be accepted in transfer.
Transfer courses are recorded as credit earned and are not computed into the student’s GPA at Kendall College or the student’s enrollment status for any given term.
Kendall College credits are recorded in quarter hours. Semester hours are multiplied by 1.5 to calculate equivalency to quarter hours.
Official evaluation of transfer credit earned at other institutions is completed by the Office of Admissions once official transcripts have been received. All transcripts received become the official property of Kendall College and will not be returned or issued to the student or to another institution. Evaluations will be kept in the student’s academic file. All evaluations are considered provisional until official transcripts are received.
This checklist will assist you in meeting all deadlines for submission of required documents.
