Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policy
Transfer students, including graduates of two-year colleges, are welcome to apply for entrance in the any term or semester. The Office of Admissions must be furnished with an official transcript from each college attended. Students from regionally accredited Associate-level colleges will receive transfer credit up to 75 semester hours for grades of C or higher in appropriate coursework.
Students from regionally accredited Baccalaureate-level colleges/universities will receive transfer credit up to 90 semester hours for grades of C or higher in appropriate coursework. Courses taken at Franklin Pierce University take precedence over transfer courses.
In the event that the student has an over-abundance of transfer credits, credits that apply to one’s degree requirements will be posted first while nonessential credits will be held separately. When the student changes programs (declares/adds/drops a major, minor and/or certificate), the student’s transfer credits may be adjusted to reflect the new program(s). When the student has a break of more than 24 consecutive months, the student’s transfer credits will be reevaluated based upon current program requirements and policies. *The high school transcript (or GED/HiSET) requirement is waived for students who have attended a regionally accredited institution of higher education and are applying to online or graduate program. In this case, the student must submit the transcript from the institution most recently attended.
