Transfer Credit Evaluation Process
Transfer credit may be awarded for successful completion of coursework compatible with Clark Atlanta University curriculum. Such credit will transfer from regionally accredited agencies.
Equivalencies for General Education courses are evaluated through the Office of Enrollment Support Services and Student Retention. However, equivalencies for major classes are evaluated through the appropriate major department. Please note, the equivalencies for major classes process is facilitated by the Office of Enrollment Support Services and Student Retention.
Only courses in which a letter grade of “C” or better may be accepted in transfer toward your degree requirements. Students transferring from a quarter system institution will have all coursework converted to a semester credit scale. Proficiencies earned at other institutions are not accepted.
