TRANSFER OF CREDIT
1.
To be considered for transfer, courses must be consonant with the rigor, content,
and mode of instruction of courses offered at Ursinus.
Ursinus courses feature in-person interactions between students and between students and faculty
that produce discussion that reinforces and intensifies the learning that takes place outside
of the classroom. These interactions depend upon the reading of verbal and non-verbal cues and
spontaneous responses that can only take place in face-to-face, in-person interactions. In addition,
Ursinus courses typically include opportunities for critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, developing
arguments through logic, evidence and reasoning, and teamwork, all of which are facilitated by a
setting that supports interpersonal interaction and exchange. However, the College does recognize
that experiencing a variety of teaching and learning formats can be a benefit to students.
For that reason, it is the policy of the College to accept in transfer no more than two (2) courses
totaling no more than eight (8) credit hours for courses that do not foreground such interactions,
as in courses featuring only online or otherwise mediated instruction.
2. A grade of "C" or better must be earned so that credit may be accepted.
3.
It is the student's responsibility to see that an official transcript of academic work is sent to
the Registrar's Office at Ursinus College, as soon as the term is completed.
4.
Students will receive only transfer credit, i.e, grades earned elsewhere will not transfer and
will not count in the cumulative GPA at Ursinus.
NOTE: Courses may not be taken pass/fail.
