Student Transfer Credit Evaluation
Use the Transfer Credit Evaluation along with the University Bulletin and your faculty advisor in determining academic program requirements. If you need an official APSU transcript, you must make an official Transcript Request.
left side of the Student Transfer Credit Evaluation lists the department, course number, course title, credit hours awarded, and grade assigned from previous institutions. For Military Service and Credit by Exam, 'P'(pass) grades have been assigned.
Only letter grades of A, B, C, D, F, or P (without consideration of +/-) are used in calculating your cumulative grade point average (GPA). 'I' grades and unofficial withdrawals are recalculated as ‘F'. Quality points are given for each grade as follows; A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0; P carries no quality points and is not used in calculating GPA.
The right side of the Student Transfer Credit Evaluation is the APSU equivalent department, course number, title and semester credit hours. For courses without an APSU equivalent, elective credit is noted as:
- EL- Elective Lower Division
- EU - Elective Upper Division
- ER - Elective Remedial/Developmental
- EG - Elective Graduate
Remedial/Developmental courses do not count toward your degree. If a course number has been assigned, the APSU title is listed. If elective credit has been assigned, the original title from your previous school is listed.
An elective credit course may be substituted for an APSU course. Approval for Core Substitution must be obtained from the Dean of the College in which the student is majoring. A Major/Minor Substitution must be approved by the Department in which the student is majoring/minoring. Substitution of a lower division course(s) for an upper division course(s) does not affect the 39 hours of upper division credits required for the bachelors degree.
The completion of an Associate of Arts or Science in a university parallel (transfer) program from a Tennessee Board of Regents two-year college, as stated in the 1988 or later bulletin, will satisfy the Liberal Arts core requirements for the BBA and BS and all core requirements for the BA except for Humanities foreign languages (6 hours). This policy also applies to Hopkinsville Community College if six semester hours of American History have been included and if their core has been met without exception. An official transcript with the degree posted must be submitted to the Office of Admissions.
