High school students who take dual college credit while in high school are encouraged to turn in their final official college transcripts in order to get credit posted to the USF transcript for a course that was taken while a high school student. Dual credit students may have coursework earned at institutions which are acceptably accredited evaluated and posted to their University of Saint Francis transcript. Credit hours thus transferred will be elective credits unless approved by their academic program to meet additional degree requirements. Courses accepted for transfer will be recorded on the student’s University of Saint Francis transcript provided a minimum grade of “C” or better is earned (unless the age of the course excludes it from acceptance; C- or below is not transferrable). 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. Please note that some courses may be not be counted toward a student’s major but will be transferred in as elective credit.
The deadline to submit Dual credit and have it posted on the USF transcript is the end of the add/drop period for the student’s first semester of attendance as a degree-seeking student.
If Dual credit is turned in past the deadline, no credit will be posted to the USF transcript and the course(s) will need to be taken at USF, if required for the degree.
Students with extenuating circumstances that prevent them from meeting the deadline to submit Dual credit, AP credit or Transfer credit may appeal the particular policy with the “Appeal for Adding AP, Dual, or Transfer Credit” form in Form Central on My Cougar Connection.
