Credit Transfer Policy – Transferring to Another College
Posted Friday, Oct 24, 2008 by
A student’s ability to transfer credits from Everest to another institution is dictated by a number of factors.
In our Everest catalog and related disclosure documents, we explain to prospective students that there is no guarantee Everest University Online credits can be transferred.
Acceptance of any institution’s credits is at the sole discretion of the receiving institution. Even so, upon request we work with students to help them transfer credits and have many students who have successfully transferred Everest University Online credits to other institutions.
Of course, those who are able to progress from the Associate’s to Bachelor’s level at Everest will have absolutely no problems with credit transfer issues.
The main “rule” is that credit transfer is wholly at the discretion of the “transfer to” institution.
Schools establish guidelines as to the number, subject matter, age, division level and satisfaction of programmatic prerequisites of previously earned academic credits.
Everest participates in processes to streamline credit transfer through agreements with individual institutions.
However, no institution, can compel another institution to accept credits students may wish to transfer.
We believe the high quality of our educational standards and the recognition of our accrediting agency by the U.S. Department of Education should be the determining factors in transfer credits, but that is not always the case.
