Transfer Credits

Transfer of Credits

Transfer credits are awarded only for courses completed at accredited institutions. Students may not transfer credits from other institutions after enrolling at the College.

Humanities and social and behavioral science transfer credits are determined on an individual basis. Transfer credits in natural and biological sciences generally must have been earned within five years of acceptance to the College for applicants in dietetic technology, neurodiagnostic technology, LPN’s in the nursing program and health information technology.

Courses accepted for transfer must be equivalent to those offered at the College in terms of nature, content, level and number of credits earned. A minimum course grade of C (2.0) is required for transfer credit. It is strongly suggested that prior to requesting transfer credit that a student discuss the desired course with an advisor. Transfer credits are made at the discretion of the Dean of Academic Affairs.

Students who wish to receive transfer credit for ENG 1010 (passed with a "C" or better) and who score below 90 (scaled score) on the sentence skills test, must successfully complete HRE 0800. At the end of HRE 0800, the Coordinator of HCOP will administer the writing sample assessment, which will be evaluated by an English faculty member. If the student is deemed proficient, transfer credit will be awarded. 

No transfer credit for science courses is awarded to students enrolled in the nursing or radiation therapy programs. “Credit by examination” will be awarded for ANA 1010, ANA 1120, and MIC 2010 (if applicable) to students in nursing and radiation therapy, when the following criteria are met:

  • For ANA 1010 and ANA 1120. A grade of C or better in A & P I and A & P II completed at another college within the past five years, as documented on an official college transcript; AND achievement at the “C” level on the Excelsior College Anatomy and Physiology examination, as documented by official results.
  • For MIC 2010. A grade of C or better in microbiology, completed at another college within the past five years, as documented on an official college transcript; AND achievement at the “C” level on the Excelsior College Microbiology examination, as documented on official exam results.

 All students must complete a minimum of 45 credits at the College, regardless of the number of transfer credits awarded.
