Course Transfer Policy
Charter Oak accepts in transfer grades of D- and above. Grades of C (2.0) or above are required in concentration and major courses, and English Composition. Neither the Cornerstone nor the Capstone course may be taken at another institution; these courses must be taken at Charter Oak State College.
Graduate students can transfer in up to six (6) credits of course work from other regionally accredited institutions. They may also earn an additional six (6) credits through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) at the point of admission. The credits must be equivalent to the content offered in one of the required courses of the program.
Transfer credits can be no more than 10 years old and will only be accepted with grades of B or higher in courses substantially similar in content, and equivalent in term credit hours, to those offered at Charter Oak State College. The final determination of transfer credit is made by the Graduate Program Director in conjunction with the Registrar.
Transfer credits will be calculated in the student’s Career Graduate GPA. Courses with a grade of P/F (Pass/Fail) or S/U (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory) will not be accepted toward the student’s Graduate program.
