To apply for transfer credit, you must have all of the following:

  • Having the Program Chair assign the application to a faculty member who is the relevant Subject Matter Expert (SME);
  • Reviewing the application and documents. The SME states on the application form the reason for supporting or denying the request for a transfer credit. The SME signs and dates the decision, and forwards the form and all attachments to the Program Chair within two (2) business days of receipt;
  • Having the Program Chair approve the application form by signing and dating it;
  • Having the Program Chair forward all documentation to the Office of the Registrar no later than six (6) business days after the receipt of the request form unless an alternative process is required;
  • Having the Office of the Registrar notify the student of the final decision (via email);
  • Having the documents filed as part of the student’s academic record in the Office of the Registrar.
