Credit Transfer Policies and Information
Atlantis University’s Academic Director is the person authorized to determine which credits a student can transfer and use towards achieving a program at the institution. In order to accept transfer credits, Atlantis University must first evaluate and determine that the coursework in question meets U.S. standards of higher education.College philosophies, objectives, and programs may vary and change over time. Therefore, it may be necessary for students to forfeit some previously earned credit during the transfer process. AU is committed to work with transfer students, but makes no blanket statement or promises of accepting credits from other institutions.
General Guidelines for Transfer Evaluations
- Official transcripts must be sent directly to Atlantis University Academic Office from the institution that initially granted the credits. Transcripts will become part of the student’s official permanent record.
- Students must complete the corresponding paperwork for each transferred course ATLANTIS UNIVERSITY determines how many credits, if any, will apply towards a degree. Courses are individually analyzed. Credit is granted after determining a course in question is sufficiently similar to a corresponding course at Atlantis University.
- Credits cannot be transferred if the student did not earn at least a “C” grade in the course.
- Before specific course credits are transferred, Atlantis University reserves the right to have a faculty member administer an examination to test the applicant’s competence level in that course.
- Transfer credits cannot be used to satisfy more than 75% of a program course load at Atlantis University. (This guideline is open to exception if credits are coming from an affiliate school that has already established an articulation agreement or memorandum of understanding with AU. The guideline can also be overridden if credits were earned as part of an outside educational program under the supervision of Atlantis University).
- When deciding whether or not credits should transfer, Atlantis prioritizes its commitment to making sure all AU’s graduates are professionally trained.
Transferring credits from International Institutions.
Credits from non-U.S. colleges/universities must be evaluated to show course equivalency to a higher education institution in the United States. Transcripts must be fully translated into English by an authorized translator.
Transferring AU Credits to Other Institutions.
Atlantis University has articulation agreements with other colleges and universities so that AU credits are eligible for transfer acceptance. Students interested in transferring AU credits to another school can contact the Academic Director for additional information. However, credits transferability is ultimately a decision of the receiving institution. Atlantis cannot offer any assurances regarding this matter.
Transfer Information for Veterans
Recipients of Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) are responsible for reporting all prior education and training to AU. The university evaluates this information and grants credit as appropriate. Tuition fees and program duration are also proportionally reduced. All AU’s decisions and actions are then relayed to the veteran student as well as the VBA.
