Transfer Credits

Join us! Find out what it takes to transfer your credits from another accredited institution

USJ will recognize the academic credit you’ve been awarded at other regionally and nationally accredited higher education institutions.

  • Courses you’ve completed that are of the general nature of courses offered at USJ will be applied toward the minimum semester credit hours required for graduation.
  • Only grades of C- or better are accepted as transfer credit.
  • You will receive a “T” (transfer) grade on your academic record for transferred credits. Only the credits earned per class will reflect in total earned credits; letter grades (A-D) do not transfer.

Transfer Credit is Not Awarded For:

  • “Credit by Examination” completed at other colleges
  • P grades, unless they are proven to be worth C or better
  • A repeat course for a non-passing or low grade received at USJ
  • A class taken outside of USJ if that same course has been awarded credit at USJ

Credit for Service in the Armed Forces

USJ will award one semester hour of transfer credit for completion of basic military training.

Other educational experiences earned during military service will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. These requests require an official transcript from the respective college or university for consideration. Contact us to learn more.
