Transfer Credits

For those students wishing to transfer from another regionally-accredited university, or a listed international institution, approval may be granted for the transfer of up to six (6) graduate credits of comparable courses. It is the applicant's responsibility to confirm with the Health Services Administration department whether or not these credits will be accepted for transfer. Such credits must meet the following criteria:

  • Only courses for which a grade of A or B was earned will be considered.
  • Previously earned credits, if accepted for transfer will be counted as having been taken in one year of the time limitation to complete the degree.
  • Only credits will be transferred, not grades or grade point averages.
  • The same credits cannot be counted towards two separate degrees.

Domestic credits must originate from institutions accredited by any of the following six regional associations:

  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Higher Education
  • North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
  • Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, Commission on Colleges
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities

International credits must originate as follows:

  • Institutions must be approved by the government as degree-granting institutions in countries where they are located.
  • The accreditation status of all foreign institutions must be evaluated through an agency that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (www.naces.org).

The academic advisor will facilitate the process for the acceptance of graduate credit to be transferred into Barry University.
