Policy Changes Related to Academic Credit
As we continue to improve the quality of our programs and prepare for accreditation, in May the Board of Trustees approved the following measures:
- No life-experience credit will be awarded and no life-experience credit previously awarded will be accepted toward graduation. This will be implemented with all newly accepted or reaccepted students. (Please note: failure to register for classes for two or more consecutive years will require reapplication and in such cases this policy will apply.)
- No transfer credit will count directly toward any major unless the class specifically matches a major requirement. This will be implemented with all newly accepted or reaccepted students.
- Classes from one major cannot be substituted for classes in another. (For example, a graduate level political economy course cannot be used toward graduation in a master’s of education major, unless it is a course shared by both majors.) This will be implemented with all newly accepted or reaccepted students.
Those students who may be affected by these policy changes have been identified and contacted by the school. If you wonder if you may be affected and you have not received a letter, please contact us so we can answer any questions.
