Transfer Credit Policy
Upon admission, academic credits earned at other educational institutions will be assessed by the Academic Office and transfer credit will be granted based on course content and instructional hours equivalency to the courses offered at CALUMS. CALUMS does not award credit for prior experiential learning.
Transfer credit is generally granted for courses comparable to those offered by California University of Management and Sciences that were successfully completed with a grade of “B” or above for Master’s degree at another accredited institution or equivalent. The University will evaluate all hours submitted by the transfer applicant and reserves the right to accept or deny any of the credits for transfer. Transcripts will be officially assessed by the Academic Office after a transfer student has been formally admitted and has declared a major.
A qualified transferring course of three (3) units can be transferred into a four (4)-unit equivalent course at the University with a condition that the student is required to perform additional academic work to fulfill the one (1) outstanding or missing unit and to pay the appropriate tuition. A form for satisfying this requirement shall be filled out by the student, approved by the Academic Dean, and submitted to the appropriate faculty for completion of this additional academic requirement. Upon completion, the faculty shall record a Passed (P) or Not Passed (NP) grade of the student’s work on the form and submit it to the Registrar no later than the Add/ Drop deadline of the following quarter. The Registrar shall place “TC” for the appropriate course on the student’s transcript only upon receiving a pass grade for this one (1) unit requirement.
The Registrar will advise students of any award of transfer credits in writing. The Registrar will also maintain records of transfer credits granted in individual student’s transcript and academic file.
Transfer credit evaluation shall be completed within the quarter that the official transcript and TC evaluation request form was received.
Transferring students must comply with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirement.
Transfer credits will be counted towards the maximal length of study at the University. Eight (8) quarter units for Master’s degree shall constitute one (1) quarter to be used in the determination of time limitations for graduation.
Transfer credit appears on a student’s academic record, and the hours are included in the student’s cumulative earned hours. Up to sixteen (16) quarter units are accepted in transfer from another institution in Master’s degree programs.
Transfer credit is not calculated in the student’s cumulative grade point average.
