Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions
Transfer credit is granted for any course taken at an accredited college or university in which the student has earned a grade of “D” or better, or in the case of a course taken on a “Pass/Fail” basis, a grade of “P” (the “P” must equate to a “D” or better), provided that the course is deemed comparable to a course offered for academic credit at Huntingdon College or is of such a nature that it would carry academic credit if it were offered by the College. A course that does not have an equivalent at Huntingdon College and is of such a nature that it would carry academic credit if it were offered by the College will receive an appropriate prefix and be numbered “000.” Courses granted as elective transfer credit will count toward the total number of academic credits required for the baccalaureate degree but are normally not applicable toward the core curriculum, major, or minor requirements.
Transfer credit will not be granted for courses which belong in one or more of the following categories: (a) courses in professional, vocational, or sectarian religious study, or (b) courses below the level of introductory courses at Huntingdon College. The College does not grant credit for attendance in service schools or training programs in the Armed Forces unless it can be demonstrated that such attendance is the equivalent of a course or courses offered at Huntingdon College. Academic courses taken while on military service at accredited colleges, universities, or language institutes may be transferred in the normal manner. No credit will be granted for general military training or for work done while a student is not in good standing.
Evaluations of credits earned from other institutions are made after a student has been selected for admission and has indicated an intention to enroll. No student may assume that credit will be given for work at other institutions until a written statement of credit accepted from the Registrar’s Office is received. Grades and credits from other institutions are not included in the student’s grade point average at Huntingdon. The only grade average recorded on the student’s permanent record is that which he or she earns at Huntingdon College.
A maximum of 64 semester hours earned at two-year institutions may be credited toward the 120-hour requirement. Courses used to meet teacher certification requirements must have been completed at a regionally accredited institution.
