Transfer from Other Colleges

Applicants from other institutions seeking admission to the University must present evidence of good standing from the institution last attended and official transcripts of all college work taken. The institution must be a college or university accredited by a Commission on Colleges of a regional accrediting association. Any applicant who has not received an honorable dismissal from the previous institution will not be considered for enrollment at Trevecca until a minimum of one semester of suspension has elapsed.

A grade of D on transfer work will be accepted with the following qualifications: (1) A transfer course in which a D has been earned will not be allowed to count toward a major or minor; (2) Applicants who transfer a D grade in a course equivalent to EGL 1100 English Composition I will be subject to the requirement of repeating EGL 1100 unless they have also completed the equivalent of EGL 2100 English Composition II; (3) Policy will apply only to work transferred from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning. Transfer students with grade point averages below minimum standards will be entered on probation. (Refer to the system of academic probation and suspension located in the Academic Policies section of the Catalog.)

Applicants should request that their official academic transcript(s) be mailed to the Office of SGCS Admissions. Transcripts must arrive prior to registration in ample time for an official evaluation of course credit to be completed. A credit evaluation of transfer credit is given to the student for advising purposes. The University is not responsible for accommodating duplicate course work that is discovered with the arrival of transcripts after the advising dates have passed.
