The Office of the Dean of Studies oversees all aspects of the student academic experience and accordingly is responsible for evaluating students’ previous course work for transfer credit. To evaluate a transcript for transfer credit, the dean’s office must have an official transcript from all of the previous institutions the student has attended, including an official transcript of the most recent semester’s grades.
The maximum number of transfer units allowed is 17. Non-liberal arts, pre-professional, physical education, independent courses, field work courses, online courses, and courses done at unaccredited institutions do not transfer. Also, courses not of a sufficiently high level (e.g., math courses below calculus) will not transfer, nor will courses graded lower than a “C.”
AP and IB Credit
AP and IB credit will be issued only upon receipt of the original testing service transcript. Scores of 4 or 5 on AP exams are eligible for 1 unit of credit. Scores of 5, 6, or 7 on Higher-Level International Baccalaureate exams are awarded 1 unit of credit. A maximum of 8 units of credit may be awarded for AP or IB credit.
