Transfer Credit Policy

Prior to Enrollment at Agnes Scott
Courses taken at other regionally accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in transfer provided that these courses are in subjects generally recognized as appropriate for liberal arts colleges and are either comparable to courses offered at Agnes Scott College or are applicable to a degree program at Agnes Scott College. Transfer credit is given for grades of C- or better. No credit is given for academic courses with pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory grades. Transfer credit must be approved by the registrar's office.

A maximum of 64 academic and two non-credit physical education courses may be applied toward an Agnes Scott degree. A student must earn a minimum of 64 hours in Agnes Scott College academic courses toward the 128 hours required for the Agnes Scott degree.

Submitting a catalog or course descriptions from the college(s) you previously attended before your first semester at Agnes Scott College helps ensure that you receive a complete transfer credit evaluation as quickly as possible. This evaluation will assist both you and your academic adviser as you select classes at Agnes Scott.

Grades for transfer credit are not factored into a student's grade point average.

After Enrollment at Agnes Scott
Any course taken at an accredited college or university, which has been approved by the dean or assistant dean of academic advising will be accepted for transfer credit if the student receives a grade of D- or better.

Once admitted to Agnes Scott College, students may satisfy only one specific or distributional standard at another institution. This applies to students on leave of absence, students who have withdrawn and been readmitted, cross-registration students and students attending summer school or doing transient work.

A maximum of 24 semester hours of credit may be transferred to Agnes Scott from another institution, including work taken in summer school, as a transient student, while on leave of absence or after the student has withdrawn and before readmission to the college. Only 12 of these 24 hours may be taken while on leave or leaves of absence. These hourly restrictions do not apply to students on approved study abroad, Washington Semester, cross-registration, exchange programs or ASC summer school.

For more information regarding summer school credits, refer to the academic policies section of the college catalog. Grades for credit earned at another institution are not factored into a student's grade point average.

Exceptions to these policies may be made by the dean of the college.
