How does the Office of Transfer Credits make their decisions?

Once a student has submitted all necessary documentation for a credit transfer, the Office of Transfer Credits at UoPeople will review the information provided to decide if the credits are applicable and transferrable. In order to determine if a course is equivalent to one at UoPeople or can be transferred as an elective, it will be evaluated using the course name, description, and, if needed, the syllabus. We look into each case with care to ensure that credits are from an accredited institution, the student has received a grade of C or above in the course, and it is applicable to their degree. We cannot guarantee that a student's application for transfer credits will be accepted, even if the student has provided all necessary documentation. The purpose of the review process is to ensure that the credits in question are indeed applicable to the degree program.
