Transfer Credits

Transfer of Credit Policy

It is the policy of Sullivan University to accept credit from other accredited postsecondary institutions when certain criteria are met. Credit will be approved for transfer of courses that are equivalent to courses offered at Sullivan and in which the student has earned a grade of “C” or better. The approval of transfer credit for certain courses completed prior to attending Sullivan University may result in the waiver of:

  • Basic Mathematics (MTH 095)
  • Introduction to Writing (ENG 095)
  • Information Literacy (FYE101)

If a student places into ENG 095 or MTH 095 but transfers ENG 101 or MTH 101 from a previous institution, the developmental 095-level course/s will be waived. The registrar’s office is responsible for determining coursework applied toward a program of study at the university.

Students transferring credit from other colleges or universities should provide Sullivan University with official transcripts of all courses completed. In rare circumstances, statements of academic policy from previously attended institutions may be requested.

It is the responsibility of the student to provide Sullivan University with an official transcript for all post-secondary classes taken prior to attending Sullivan University. These documents should be mailed or sent electronically from the institution to the Registrar’s Office. Once received, transcripts become the property of Sullivan University and may not be released to the student. A student may be admitted on a provisional basis for one term until the transcript is received.

Where to Send Transcripts

Official transcripts may be mailed or sent electronically to Sullivan’s Registrar by the records office of the issuing institution(s). Sullivan University does not accept transcripts sent or carried by hand by the applicants themselves or transmitted by fax.

Courses must be similar in nature to a course in our undergraduate curriculum and applicable to one of our undergraduate academic programs to receive transfer credit. Sullivan University employs the American Council on Education’s Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services to assess the potential transferability of military coursework.

Acceptable forms of documentation:

  • JST Transcript (Joint Services Transcript)
  • CCAF Transcript (Community College of the Air Force Transcript)
