Credit Hours

Total Hours Required to Earn Degree/Certificate: 123 (semester hours)
Maximum Hours Transferable into Program: 93

Credit Transfer Policy

A minimum of 25% of credit hours (30 semester hours) must be earned at Columbus State University, 20 semester hours in the upper division level in the major, in order to meet the residency requirements for a Baccalaureate degree.

Special Credit Transfer Information

The university makes every effort to transfer credit for academic work completed at other institutions. In general, courses completed at a regionally accredited college or university will transfer. Credit is allowed for English 1101 and 1102 if the grade in each course is C or better.

Recognition for placement in advanced courses will be given for previous work that is substantially equivalent to, and at the same level as, prerequisites at Columbus State University. Regardless of the total number of semester credit hours allowed in transfer, a minimum of 30 semester hours must be taken in residence at Columbus State University after the student has qualified as a junior.

Requests for transfer credit will be considered for persons who have gained admission as transfer students and will be based on official transcripts supplied by colleges previously attended. For use in satisfying requirements for a degree, all work evaluated as valid transfer credit is subject to approval by the dean or chair of the appropriate academic unit. Quarter hours are converted to semester hours by using the formula of one quarter hour equals two-thirds of a semester hour. Students may view their academic record showing transfer course work online by visiting CougarNet.

CSU has a number of articulation agreements with other institutions. Additional transfer information can be found at http://admissions.columbusstate.edu/transfer/.

Credit is accepted for Prior Learning. Additional information is available at http://academics.columbusstate.edu/catalogs/current/admissionug.php#nonTradCr.
