Transfer Credit

Transfer credit taken before matriculation may be used for fulfilling area requirements, not for fulfilling major requirements, except with special permission of the department. Students in the College must take the second writing requirement in the College and earn a grade of at least C-.

Transfer credit is allowed only for those courses in which a grade of C or better has been earned. In the College, courses in which a grade of CR is received must be certified to be the equivalent of a grade of C or higher to be accepted. Only credits are accepted in transfer. Grades do not transfer and do not effect the student's cumulative grade point average at the University of Virginia.

Transfer credit is evaluated only for the degree program to which students are admitted, and the amount of credit awarded is subject to change if students change degree programs. In the College, the amount of transfer credit awarded and the number of full-time semesters previously completed determines class standing. A maximum of sixty-six credits may be transferred to the University from a combination of testing programs and academic institutions

For more information, see the "Transfer Credit" section of chapter 5.
