Transfer Credit Policy
Courses completed at regionally accredited post-secondary institutions that are comparable in content, scope, and rigor to course offerings within the academic programs offered at Emmanuel College will be considered for transfer credit. No credit will be given for the following courses: vocational coursework, continuing education units, pre-collegiate or remedial courses, including any ESL coursework, social activities, or correspondence courses, unless recognized and offered by the U.S Armed Forces Institute. Military courses on a Joint Services transcript with content that are within the scope of programs offered at Emmanuel will be accepted for credit.
In general, courses must be 3-4 semester credits, or the equivalent, to transfer credit. Courses with credits in non-semester hours will be converted to equivalent semester hours. Credit will be granted only for courses in which a grade of 2.0 (C) or higher is achieved. Courses completed at international institutions must be the equivalent of a (C) or higher. Grades for transfer courses are not included in the Emmanuel grade point average and will not appear on the Emmanuel College transcript.
