After having completed all requirements for transfer admission, matriculated students will be given a statement of credits accepted for transfer by the University within the first semester of enrollment. Students from regionally accredited colleges and universities may transfer credit for college-level academic courses completed with grades of C (meaning C-, C, or C+) or better, but the University reserves the right to determine what credit, if any, for courses taken elsewhere may be counted toward its degrees. (Undergraduate Catalog 2014-15 p. 25)
It is the responsibility of the student to review the statement of credits and to work with his or her advisor to ensure that all Core Curriculum requirements are fulfilled prior to graduation.
Your individual Program Evaluation form provides the easiest method of tracking student progress. Courses transferred in from other universities and courses completed at Coastal Carolina University will display as completed on the form. You must login to WebAdvisor to see the form.
Transferring in Courses
In some instances student may have taken courses at other institutions that meet the student learning outcomes for a specific core area. If these courses do not transfer in as core courses, consult your advisor to determine if you should initiate an "exception to the core curriculum petition" to receive credit for previously completed courses.
Core Goal 1A: Transfer students may satisfy Part A with 6-8 hours of transferable credit for English 101 and English 102.
Core Goal 5A: Transfer students may satisfy Part A with six credit hours of transferable foreign language in sequence from previous institutions or with three credit hours at the 130 level or above.
Transfer Students with an Earned A.A., A.S., B.A., or B.S Degree, or International B.S. or B.A., or International Master's Degree (with 150 hours)
A student will be exempt from having to meet core curriculum requirements if the student is accepted to the University with an earned Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Baccalaureate of Arts, or Baccalaureate of Science degree from a regionally accredited college or university in the U.S., with a baccalaureate degree from an accredited international institution of higher education, or with a master's degree (that requires at least 150 equivalent U.S. credit hours to complete) form an accredited international institution of higher education.
Coursework from external institutions will be evaluated for transfer to the University on an individual basis in accordance with established transfer policies and procedures. (See Transfers, pages 23-30, in the Undergraduate Catalog.) Instead of applying towards core requirements, transferred course credits may be applied to foundation, minor, cognate or major requirements, or may be counted as electives.
Note: credit for the Core requirement courses will not be awarded as a result of the exemption. All requirements for the awarding of degrees, including prerequisites, minimum credits earned and minimum grades still apply. All course prerequisites and co-requisites still apply. Associate in Applied Science degrees, and degrees from foreign institutions are not eligible for the core curriculum exemption.
