Other Course Credit Policies


Armed Forces

The University will grant credit for all appropriate educational experiences in the Armed Forces in accordance with the recommendations of the American Council on Education in its publication: A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services.

Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard veterans with continuous active duty may receive up to two hours of physical activity credit in kinesiology. One kinesiology activity credit may be awarded per each six months of active duty.

All students are required to successfully complete KINE 1164 or KINE 1238 Lifetime Fitness unless seeking the BAS degree.

Other credits for service in the armed forces may be documented on a case-by-case basis.  The evaluation will be made from either the veteran's DD214 or the official AARTS/SMARTS transcript. 
The transcript is the preferred document.

International Baccalaureate

Students graduating from high schools that offer approved International Baccalaureate programs may request evaluation of their credits by the Advising and Career Development Center.  Credit in lieu of college work will be granted dependent upon the particular courses taken and grades earned.  An official transcript from the student's high school is required for official evaluation
For more information, see the International Baccalaureate Appendix from the academic catalog.

International Students - Transfer Credit Upon Admission

International students who desire to transfer credit from foreign universities must submit to the Registrar professional evaluations of their transcripts.  Fees for evaluation of credit are the responsibility of the student.  The Registrar will determine which credits transfer and how they fit into the student's degree plan.
