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. In cases of necessity, exceptions to this rule can be made, but a completed application from the student for a permit to transfer credit must be on file in the Registrar’s Office. Students must be in good academic standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 and no account holds) with the university to become approved to transfer credit.
The Registrar must approve the courses by issuing a permit before students register for the courses at other acceptably (regionally) accredited institutions. Upon completion of such courses, the student is expected to request that 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.
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.
