Loras College accepts collegiate-level, academic coursework from regionally accredited colleges and universities. “Regionally accredited” refers to the Higher Learning Commission or other similar federally-recognized regional accrediting agencies. Transfer credit is accepted as equivalent coursework based on the credit value of the Loras course, not the credit value of a previous post-secondary institution.
TRANSFER CREDIT RESTRICTIONS
Only collegiate-level, academic coursework with a final grade of “C” or better will be considered for transfer credit. A course with a grade of “P” or “S” may be awarded transfer credit at the discretion of the Office of the Registrar. A course will be considered for transfer credit only if content was similar to a Loras College course.
Maximum transfer credit awarded:
A maximum of 64 credits from a community college/junior college/two-year college and/or examination credit may be awarded toward the total number of hours needed for graduation. A maximum of 90 credits from a four-year institution may be awarded toward the total number of hours needed for graduation. A maximum of 90 credits from two-year and four-year institutions combined may be awarded toward the total number of hours needed for graduation (not to exceed the previous stated maximums). The Office of the Registrar reserves the right to determine the total number of credits to be awarded for each transfer course. A maximum of 30 exam credits may be accepted towards completion of a baccalaureate degree.
