Transfer Credit Appeal Procedure

When official transcripts are received, the Registrar will review all transcripts and award transfer credit as appropriate.
The student may appeal the decision of the Registrar to a review committee composed of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the University Transfer Program Coordinator. The decision of the review committee is final.
A written request and justification for an appeal should be addressed to the:
Transfer Credit Review Committee
