Board Policies



Transfer credits will be accepted from vocational-technical schools, colleges, and universities starting from the year that they are accredited or hold candidacy status with the Higher Learning Commission or other similar regionally accrediting body. Transfer credit from other institutions is subject to approval by the Registrar. All transfer credit will be equated to the semester-hour system. All credits earned with an F grade or higher will be transferred. Transfer hours are not included in Cowley College grade-point average but are included in the cumulative GPA toward the graduation requirements.

Cowley College will accept survey courses in religion from a non-regional accredited institution for a maximum of 6 credit hours. These credits will be counted as credits towards humanities requirements or elective hours toward graduation. Students should be aware that when they transfer to another college or university they may have to validate their course work again.

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.
