This publication was developed to help students with transferring credits and degrees. Criteria for transferability are discussed, and procedures are suggested for navigating and monitoring the transfer process. Sample documents for an Information Packet are included. If an institution refuses to accept credits or degree, options for next steps may include: (1) Asking the admitting university if they have an appeal process and how to submit a formal appeal; (2) Asking the registrar for admission on provisional or probationary status; (3) Contacting the Department Dean to ask for an interview and review of work before a final decision is made; and (4) If an institution gives credit for unaccredited course work, such as life or work experience, ask for the same review process for accredited course work.
