Transfer Credits

Transfer Credit Policy

Credit is accepted from other regionally accredited institutions of higher education, approved standardized examinations (CLEP, DANTES, AP, etc.), and specifically approved professional programs. The maximum amount of community college transfer credit which may be applied to a baccalaureate degree is 62 credit hours. (Sixty-two (62) credit hours from a four-year college/university are required for a bachelor's degree.) This limit, however, may vary depending on the program in which the student is enrolled.

Correspondence courses may be transfer credit from other institutions of higher education and are limited to 15 credit hours. The number of transfer hours is posted on the student's Newman transcript. Individual courses are not listed but the number of credit hours from each school attended is listed. The recorded cumulative grade point average for the transfer student is calculated only on credit earned through Newman University. An Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from a regionally accredited two-year college will meet the requirements for Skills courses and some General Education courses. These students are required to take a maximum of six courses to complete the Newman Studies Program: one theology course and one philosophy course from the General Education level as well as the four required core courses.

Will Newman accept my credit hours from another college?

We have built an online application to help you easily determine if you can carry over college credit hours to Newman University. If you have any questions about credit transfers, please contact the Registrar's Office.
