Required documentation

To receive transfer credit for previous college work, credit-by-exams, or work/military experience evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE), students must submit:

  • Official copy of college transcripts from institution previously attended
  • Employer course certificates with description of course and class hours

or transcripts from:

  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP) – score

Transcript responsibility

The student is responsible for providing transcripts prior to enrollment at Grantham to ensure he/she is not enrolled in a course for which he/she will receive transfer credit.

Amount of transfer credit allowed

The amount of transfer credit accepted depends on the declared program of study and Grantham’s residency requirement.

Residency requirement

Undergraduate students must complete at least 25% of the required credit hours in the enrolled degree program at Grantham. Graduate students must successfully complete at least 75% of courses in the enrolled degree program at Grantham.

Foreign transcript evaluation

All transcripts must be in English. An applicant who has completed secondary/university-level courses in a foreign country that are comparable to course credits in the American education system must have his/her courses evaluated and official copies of the evaluations sent to Grantham. Foreign transcript evaluations are accepted from any agency that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services or the Association of International Credential Evaluators.
