Ordinarily, courses which are offered regularly at the University of Saint Francis may not be taken elsewhere after the student becomes enrolled at the university. Once enrolled, students are permitted to take a maximum of 7 transfer hours during their undergraduate studies at USF. Rarely, exceptions to this limit may be made for academic progression.
For any transfer credit under this policy, the Registrar must approve the Outside Course Verification form before students register for the courses at other acceptably accredited institutions. The form can be found in Form Central on My Cougar Connection. Students must be in good academic standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 and no account holds) with the university to be approved to transfer credit.
Upon completion of such courses, the student is responsible for requesting an official transcript of his/her grades be sent to the Registrar’s Office. Transferred courses will be recorded on the student’s University of Saint Francis transcript provided a grade of “C” or better is earned (unless the age of the course excludes it from acceptance). Accepted credit hours are not included in the computation of the student’s University of Saint Francis GPA. Please note that some courses may not be counted toward a student’s major but will be transferred as elective credit.
Students should refer to the Degree Requirements section of this catalog regarding limits on the amount of transfer credit and the relationship of transfer credit to eligibility for earning a degree from the University of Saint Francis.
