- Transfer Credits
Southwestern College established a Transfer Credit Policy and Transfer Credit Process to ensure the quality of credit it accepts as transfer. Since the Southwestern College curriculum includes academic and experiential components, the College grants transfer credit only after careful evaluation of a student’s work at other institutions.
Acceptance of transfer credit is determined on a case by case basis and criteria include: credit earned from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning; course work is similar to Southwestern College courses – comparable credit hours, course content, and course objectives with some room for interpretation and flexibility; coursework was completed within a timeframe of five years as of the time of the review; final grade posted for each potential transfer course is a ‘B-‘ grade or better; course work was taken for “Credit” at the university/college; and course has experiential components. Southwestern College only accepts up to 21 semester credits or 31.5 quarter units of credit for coursework completed at another college or university towards a graduate degree.
