Admissions Counselors are available to meet with students and provide an estimate of transferable credit. After the student has been fully admitted to the University as a degree candidate, the Registrar will evaluate transcripts from other colleges or universities. Credit will be awarded for each appropriate course taken at properly accredited institutions, in which a grade of C or better was earned. Official transcripts are required for evaluation. The student may be responsible for requesting course descriptions from the original institution if the University deems it necessary. General guidelines for transfer credit are as follows:
- Residency Requirement At least 45 of the 120 credit hours required for a bachelors degree must be earned at Queens University of Charlotte no matter how many hours are accepted in transfer, or are earned through examinations or certifications, unless the student already holds a bachelors degree from an accredited institution. In this case, at least 30 of the 120 credit hours required for a degree must be earned at Queens University of Charlotte.
- Maximum Credit from a Two-Year Institution No more than 60 of the 120 semester hours required for graduation may be transferred from two-year institutions.
- Transfer Credit and Graduation With Honors It should be noted that only students who complete at least 60 credit hours at Queens University of Charlotte will be eligible for graduation with honors.
- Calculating the Cumulative Grade Point Average A student's cumulative grade point average is based solely on work at Queens University of Charlotte. Transferred credits from other institutions will not be calculated into the Queens GPA.
