Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policy

Grantham University evaluates and awards transfer credit any time an enrolled student submits an official transcript, if applicable. Students will be required to repeat courses in which competencies have not been mastered.

A prospective student may use:

  • Prior college coursework. Transcripts must be in English. Foreign transcripts require an equivalency evaluation prior to evaluation at Grantham.
  • Military experience. As determined by ACE (American Council on Education); usually listed on a JST or CCAF transcript.
  • Employer courses. Provided the course has been appropriately evaluated for college credit by ACE.
  • AP, CLEP and DANTES/DSST. Courses offered by taking these tests are transferrable into the degree program for which they apply, as long as the ACE recommended score is achieved and the test was taken less than 20 years prior to matriculation.

Grantham awards transfer credit on a course-by-course basis for courses with equivalent content and value as the corresponding Grantham course(s). Generally, undergraduate college-level courses completed at accredited institutions as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) will transfer, provided that grades of at least “C” are earned and the course is similar in content and scope to work offered at Grantham. Developmental courses will not be considered for transfer. Nursing courses are not transferrable into the nursing programs at Grantham.

The amount of transfer credit accepted is dependent upon the declared program of study and Grantham’s residency requirement. Previously earned transfer credit is determined by the requirements of the program.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all official transcript(s) are forwarded to Grantham directly from other institutions attended by the student.
