Transfer of Credit Policy, Undergraduate Programs — SGCS
A maximum of 82 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours) may be accepted from community/junior colleges as transfer credit to the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program at Olivet. For work taken beyond the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, only courses with a grade of C- or above are eligible for possible transfer.
Students who enter bachelor’s degree-completion programs at Olivet with Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees from regionally accredited colleges and universities will have met all general education requirements for graduation from Olivet, except for the two upper-division religion courses and six hours of international culture credits. However, these students may be required to complete additional elective courses beyond the required core courses in their programs to satisfy the 128 credit-hour requirement for graduation from Olivet.
Students who enter bachelor’s degree-completion programs with associate degrees other than Associate of Arts or Associate of Science (for example, A.A.S., A.L.S. or A.G.S.) from regionally accredited colleges or universities will likely have to complete additional courses to satisfy Olivet’s general education requirements and take additional elective courses beyond the required core courses in their programs to satisfy the 128 credit-hour graduation requirement. As part of the 128 hours, a minimum of 40 credits in upper-division courses (courses numbered 300 or above) are required; this requirement is generally fulfilled within the program of study.
Transcripts of students without Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis to determine transferable credits. Student Advocates will assist and advise students in preparing plans of study to meet program, general education, and graduation requirements.
College credit may be earned through additional classes; credit for academically relevant experiences; proficiency, CLEP, and/or Regents College Examinations, and under specific circumstances, for appropriate prior learning experiences.
