Current Students

Students wishing to take a course at another instittion who would like it evaluated prior to completion may submit a Course Evaluation Request here.

Please note that students must gain approval from their advisor prior to taking a course at another institution for their degree.

It is the student’s responsibility to request a final official transcript at the conclusion of their course to be sent to Academic Records to finalize the transfer.

Once the course has been evaluated the student will be notified if the course can be considered for transfer of credit. Due to varying factors, approval of a course does not guarantee that transfer of credit will be granted. Transfer of credit is only granted after the course has been successfully completed, and a request for transfer of credit has been received with the required documentation.

Course evaluations are conducted in the order in which they are received; however, requests from current students will take priority. Course evaluations are not intended to evaluate an entire program; we reserve the right to limit the number of courses evaluated.
