Avon College Students seeking to transfer earned credits should be aware that policies at some traditional colleges and universities have not kept pace with the mobility of today’s students. Some universities accept academic credits or degrees only from institutions that are regionally accredited, even though the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) have endorsed the principle that transfer of credit should not be denied solely on the basis of source of institutional accreditation. This Guide addresses the subject of credit transfer; however, the information may also apply to getting a degree accepted by another institution for the purpose of admission to a higher degree level.
The Department of Education and CHEA recognize some national accreditors as well as the regional accrediting agencies. That recognition is the primary authority by which accrediting agencies review, scrutinize and endorse the integrity and quality of educational institutions.
Accepting credits earned at another institution is the prerogative of the receiving institution. No college, school or accrediting agency can require another institution to accept in transfer credit earned somewhere else. Even when the sending institution is accredited by the same agency as the receiving school, there is no guarantee credits will transfer.
The decision on whether or not to accept your academic credit could be made by the chairperson of the department, a faculty transcript review committee, an individual faculty member, an admissions officer or other college official. Factors that affect the willingness to accept academic credit in transfer may be in the institution’s catalog, and include:
