The College of Adult & Professional Studies accepts transfer credit based on the source of credit, level of credit, and grade earned.

Credit is acceptable from regionally accredited institutions of higher education, nationally accredited institutions of higher education, and comparably accredited international institutions of higher education. Credit from any other institution will be accepted only when there is an officially approved transfer articulation agreement with the institution.

Coursework must be designated by the originating institution as freshman-level or higher.

Courses receiving a D or higher grade will be accepted in transfer. With limitations, grades of CR (Credit), P (Pass), and S (Satisfactory) are acceptable. When grades are transcripted as percentages only, grades must be 70% or higher. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale on all academic work accepted in transfer. B.S. Nursing applicants must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher.

Courses accepted in transfer must be relevant or equivalent courses required for the student’s program of study. CAPS broadly evaluates the relevancy or equivalency of transfer courses in light of its deep integration of the liberal arts and high quality professional education.
