TRANSFER OF CREDIT FROM ANOTHER INSTITUTION

Students may transfer from other post-secondary public or private institutions recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Admission and transfer of credit will be based on an evaluation of the academic transcript by the School Director. Credit for courses with a final grade of “B” or better from another accredited post-secondary institution will be accepted under the following conditions:

Baccalaureate Degree:

  • There is comparability in the nature, content and level of credit earned to the appropriate and applicable course and program offered by Southwest University at El Paso.
  • Official transcripts must be received before the enrollment date.
  • A maximum of 10 courses will be transferred to a baccalaureate program

Associate Degree, Certificate Programs:

  • Credit must have been awarded within (7) years.
  • There is comparability in the nature, content and level of credit earned to the appropriate and applicable course and program offered by Southwest University at El Paso.
  • Transcripts must be received before the enrollment date.
  • A maximum of 4 courses will be transferred to an associate degree or a certificate program

A transcript must be furnished from the educational institution previously attended prior to request for evaluation. A course competency examination may be required. Contact the Academic Advisor for more information.

ARTICULATION CREDITS

Southwest University at El Paso has Articulation Agreements with the following Universities:

  • University of Phoenix
  • Grand Canyon University

Students who have completed selected classes in high school that have been approved and are agreed upon by both SU and the ISD for that school year could be eligible for articulated credit. Please visit the admissions office for more details.

LIMITED TRANSFERIBILITY OF CREDIT TO OTHER INSTITUTIONS

SU does not guarantee transferability of credit to other post-secondary institutions and acknowledges that credit transferability is limited. Post-secondary institutions vary greatly in their practice of accepting transfer credit for courses completed at other post-secondary institutions. The acceptance of transfer credits is left at the discretion of the institution to which an individual transfers. Students who transfer may be required to repeat courses in which a grade of “D” or “F” was received. Students planning to transfer are urged to contact the school to which they intend to transfer and apply for transfer credit. Many of the courses offered by Southwest University at El Paso have been developed to prepare students with skills appropriate to the employment market rather than for college transfer. Some institutions may accept such courses as elective credit, while other institutions may not accept the transfer credit.
