How does the university determine which courses can be accepted for transfer?

The acceptance of transfer credits between institutions is at the discretion of the receiving college or university.

As a general example, transfer credit is awarded for course work that:
- has been completed at an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/);
- meets the curriculum requirements (for both subject area and number of semester hours) of the specific degree program at Patten University;
- meets the overall grade point average (GPA) requirements of the degree program at Patten University;
- has content which has not significantly changed since the course was taken (i.e., there have not been many changes in English grammar and composition in the past ten years, but Management Information Systems has changed frequently).

As a general example, transfer credit is NOT awarded for course work that:
- was completed at an institution which is/was not accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education;
- was remedial in nature or that could not be credited toward a degree at the institution where the course work was completed;
- is a duplicate course for which credit has already been awarded;
- was awarded as experiential learning at another institution.
