Transfer Credit Policies
The Registrar, with assistance from academic departments, will determine the transferability of credits. Acceptable transfer course credit must carry a grade of “C” or higher (2.0 on a 4.0 scale). A written evaluation of transfer credit will be made available to students and to their advisors after they are accepted for admission. The evaluation of course credits will indicate which courses have transferred and which courses fulfill general education requirements and Haskell graduation requirements. Students who have earned credits elsewhere which do not fulfill Haskell degree requirements may take a comprehensive challenge examination or request a review by the appropriate academic department to validate that level of achievement. Transfer credits are included in the calculation of the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) upon graduation. Students in the associate degree program must complete 15 credit hours in residence. Students in the baccalaureate degree programs must complete 30 credit hours in residence.
Evaluation of Transfer Credit:
- An evaluation of transfer credit will be completed after final and official transcripts from each institution have been received by Haskell. Upon completion, evaluation information will be sent to the student and to the student’s academic advisor.
- All college-level courses from colleges or universities in candidacy status or accredited by any of the six regional accrediting agencies at the time the courses were taken will be accepted for transfer. Courses from unaccredited schools will not be accepted for transfer.
- The Office of the Registrar determines whether or not the transfer work is college level, the appropriate grading and credit conversions on transfer work, and the applicability of transfer credit toward the University core requirements. However, the colleges and schools have the prerogative to substitute transfer courses for curriculum requirements.
- College-level courses which do not have an equivalent at Haskell will be accepted as general elective credit. The college or school will determine if the transfer electives satisfy specific curriculum requirements.
- Transfer credit is accepted as general elective credit from vocational technical institutions if the institution is regionally accredited and the courses taken apply toward an associate degree at the institution. 6. Courses granted as elective transfer credit will count toward the total number of academic credits required for a degree, but are normally not applicable toward the General Education curriculum or major requirements.
Transfer Students from Tribal Colleges and Universities
Transfer students who have completed associate degrees at tribal colleges and universities, but who have not completed general education degree requirements may be admitted to Haskell on a provisional basis for two semesters. Upon successful completion of required courses, applications for admission into a baccalaureate program will be reconsidered. Students who have used up financial aid eligibility in an associates program will not be eligible for financial aid until admitted into a baccalaureate program.
