Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Plymouth accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited, degree-granting institutions for courses, which are appropriate to the Plymouth curriculum, and for which grades of C (not C- or CD) or above were earned. Only the credit is transferred, not the grades. Hence a student’s grade point average at Plymouth is based only on grades earned at Plymouth. A maximum of 90 credits from regionally accredited degree-granting institutions will be accepted toward the  baccalaureate degree.

Credits accepted do not necessarily apply to fulfilling any of the transfer student’s major or general education requirements. Such credits may be used as free electives, but many transfer students find they have transferred in more free elective credits than their Plymouth program requires. Advisors may have to help students realize that this frustration is a cost of transferring; program requirements in different schools are often quite different.
