Loyola Marymount University Bulletin 2012-2013
Up one level:
In this section:
Credit for work completed at institutions accredited by one of the six regional associations of the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities may generally be accepted toward the satisfaction of degree and credential requirements at Loyola Marymount University.
Credit will not be accepted for courses that:
Any student regularly enrolled as a degree candidate who elects to take courses at a college or university other than Loyola Marymount University must obtain a Transfer Course Approval form signed by the Associate Dean of the student’s major prior to enrollment in such courses. Courses taken without this approval may not be counted toward the degree. Approved undergraduate courses must be passed with a grade of C (2.0) or higher, or approved graduate courses must be passed with a grade of B (3.0) or higher, in order to transfer. Semester hour value is granted to transfer courses; grades or GPA information on transfer work is neither listed on nor calculated in LMU work printed on the academic record.
An official transcript from the transfer institution must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar before any transfer courses may become a part of the continuing student’s LMU degree program.
In order to receive credit toward a graduate degree for post-baccalaureate work taken at other colleges and universities, the student must obtain a general petition to transfer credit from the Office of the Registrar. Two official transcripts recording the transfer courses must be sent directly by the institution to the Graduate Admissions Office or the Office of the Registrar. If approved by his/her Department, Program Director, and/or Dean of the student’s college or school, a student may transfer a maximum of two applicable courses of approved graduate credit from an accredited institution for work completed no more than five years ago. No course credit may be transferred unless the grade received was at least a "B" (3.0). If a course was used to satisfy a degree requirement, it usually cannot be used for transfer credit, with the exception of core or prerequisite requirements. Transfer credits are not used to calculate GPA.
Course work completed at non-U.S. institutions must be documented on an official academic record from an international institution recognized by the Ministry or Department of Education of that country.
A foreign credentials evaluation may be required upon request by the Office of the Registrar.
