Transfer Credits

Transfer Credits
Transfer credit may be accepted, subject to the following conditions and restrictions.

  • The course(s) offered for transfer must be comparable in academic quality to Hendrix courses, have originated at an accredited institution, and have a recorded grade of C or better. Credit or Pass grades will not be accepted in transfer. Courses originating from institutions that are in direct, formal institutional exchange agreements with Hendrix will be exempt from these grade restrictions and will be recorded in transfer.
  • For incoming transfer students, one credit will be awarded for every four semester-hours of accepted transfer work, rounding to the nearest whole credit. Once a student has matriculated at Hendrix, one credit will be awarded for every accepted transfer course, provided the transfer course carries at least three semester-hours of academic weight.
  • Transfer credit must originate from courses taken in residence at an accredited institution. No transfer credit is awarded for correspondence work, for courses taken in a high school setting, or for courses that have been applied toward an earned baccalaureate degree.

Current students are strongly urged to seek transfer approval from their advisor and the Registrar using the form provided for this purpose prior to enrollment in any course for which transfer approval might be sought. The number of transfer courses that can be used to fulfill graduation requirements is determined by the residency requirement in item VI of the Program for the Bachelor of Arts Degree.

If a course is accepted for transfer credit, the grade from the originating institution will not appear on the Hendrix transcript unless the originating institution has a direct, formal institutional exchange agreement with Hendrix. Transfer grades from institutions that are in direct, formal institutional exchange agreements with Hendrix (such as the Graz, Westminster and ISEP study abroad programs and various consortium relationships) will be recorded but not calculated in the Hendrix grade point average. Transfer grades will be recorded and included in the Hendrix grade point average if Hendrix is the originating institution (such as the Hendrix-in-Oxford and Hendrix-in-London programs).
