Transfer Credit Self-evaluation Student Name _________________________________________________________________________________ Program applying for___________________________________________________________________________ Aspen University accepts academic credits earned from accredited/approved academic institutions when the course content is deemed the equivalent to our own. The number of transfer credits granted for each course depends on the other college's definition of its credit system. Credits from a school that also operates on a semester credit system transfer one-to-one. Credits from schools on a quarter credit system will transfer in a ratio of 2/3 semester credit for each quarter credit on a course-by-course basis, rounded to the nearest whole credit. For example, a course for which the student earned three quarter credits at another college will transfer to Aspen as two semester credits; a course with four-quarter credits would transfer as three semester credits. Previously earned credit will be assessed during the admission process. Applicants wishing to transfer in credits or degrees earned at institutions located outside the United States must have their academic transcripts evaluated and certified by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc. (NACES) member organization. Applicants will be assessed a fee by the certifying organization and should request that the report be sent directly to Aspen University. Applicants transferring in a degree need to request a General Report. Applicants wishing to transfer in credits toward specific courses in the Aspen curricula must request a Course-by- Course report.
