A maximum of six (6) semester hours (10 quarter hours) of graduate
work, approved by the University of Montevallo, may be transferred from a
regionally accredited institution. Such credit must have been earned within six
years prior to the granting of the degree. No course may be transferred with a
grade lower than B, and no course may be transferred with a grade of pass/fail.
Course equivalency is determined by the department chair. Transfer credit
practices are consistent with American Association of Collegiate Registrars and
Admissions Officers (AACRAO).
A student enrolled in the graduate program at the University of
Montevallo may, with the written approval of his or her adviser and college
dean, be allowed to attend another university as a transient student, provided
the total number of hours taken at other institutions does not exceed six (6)
semester hours. Without such written approval, the University of Montevallo is
under no obligation to allow credit for the courses taken. It is the
responsibility of the student to see that two copies of the official transcript
of the credits earned is sent to Graduate Admissions and Records immediately
following completion of the course(s). No course may be transferred with a grade
lower than a “B”.
The University does
not award academic credit for non-academic pursuits such as
continuing education courses, "life experience," or any other
course work taken on a noncredit basis.
