Q. I have been accepted. When will I know what credits transferred?
A. Credit evaluation is done upon acceptance and is included in your acceptance packet.
Q. When can I register for classes?
A. The credit evaluation must be processed and completed before a transfer student can register for classes. Those students transferring without a declared major MUST contact the Academic Advising Office. Those students transferring 31 or more hours, and a declared major MUST contact their school coordinator for advising PRIOR to registering for any classes. The contact information for these departments will be included in the transfer credit letter included in your acceptance packet.
Q. I did not receive all the transfer credits on my transcript. What happened?

2. You must have earned a "C" or better in the class.
3. The class cannot be 10 years or older
4. The class in question was "in progress" when you were accepted to the University. Please make sure that you have sent an official transcript at the end of the semester in which you applied and had classes "in progress".
