                                                                                           2.2 Credit Transfers




2.2 Credit Transfers
Transfer students may receive credit for courses taken at other institutions. If the school is an accred-
ited college or university, full Providence College credit may be granted for courses comparable to
those offered at Providence College in which a grade of “C” or better is received.
If the school is not accredited, transfer students, upon successful completion of one year of probation-
ary studies at Providence College (achieving a minimum AGPA of 2.00 in their first 30 hours of study)
may receive transfer credits for their previous studies in which a grade of “B” or better is received. The
amount of such transfer credits will depend upon a review of the course syllabi, faculty credentials, etc.
To graduate from Providence College, all transfer students will need to take at Providence College 30
credit hours or one-third of the program requirements (whichever is less). For degree programs this
must include at least one course in each of the following areas:
  • Humanities, Mathematics, Science, or Social Science
  • Biblical Studies or Theology
  • Aviation, Business Administration, Church Ministries, Communications and Media, Intercultural
    Studies, Music, TESOL, Worship Studies, or Youth Leadership
Transfer students should note that such transfer credit as Providence College is prepared to grant may
not be accepted by other colleges or universities in which they may later wish to enrol, even if those
colleges or universities recognize transfer of credit for studies taken at Providence College.
