When transferring credits, only credits with a C grade or higher will be accepted. Students may appeal the acceptance of transfer credit by completing a transfer credit appeal form in the Registrar’s office.

The coursework from a non-regional accredited institution will not be entered in its entirety on the Cowley College transcript, but only those courses that have been approved will have the notation of credit hour, letter grade, and grade points.
