Credit Transfer

There are many students who end up completing their college degree at different schools. No matter what the reason is, it’s perfectly common for students to change their campuses. However, students must understand that every class transfer will not help them land a brick-and-mortar college which means they could end up wasting their time if they aren’t careful. For making a switch, it’s important for you to know all the ins and outs of the credit transfer process.

How Students Can Benefit With Our Credit Transfer Process?

We, at AVU, realized that students have to often switch their college/university for some reason or the other due to which their studies get affected. Students, therefore, are in a lookout of an easy credit transfer process which can value the hard work of their previous years and prevent them from wasting their valuable time. Our experts thus streamlined the entire credit transfer process and made it as student-friendly as possible.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

Credit transfer is awarded for post-secondary courses that are completed by students at some other institutions only if that course meets our standards and requirements of your specific program’s interest. Our registrar evaluates the transcripts submitted by students on the basis of the following policies and criterion:

Master’s degree programs – At most 20% of total credits which are required for the completion of the program can be applied from the credits transferred in the American Vision University. Apart from that, for a master’s degree which requires 36 semester credits, only seven (7) credits can be transferred.

General requirements for the documentation of coursework and/or credit hours

Coursework and credit hours are evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Credits which are earned in the past seven years are accepted first. Credits older than that may be accepted on the basis of the subject’s area and the professional work history of the applicant.
  2. An academic catalog along with the syllabus and/or the course outline from the institution which is awarding the credit is available.
  3. Credit transfer value is less than or equal to the value of the equivalent our course.
  4. General purpose education courses can be substituted and thereafter applied as a transfer credit if the courses are found to be comparable to the correct general education subject area.
Transcripts of non-U.S. institutions have to be evaluated by a foreign credential evaluation service; however, members of www.naces.org are acceptable.
