Transferability of Credits

Cedarville University offers excellent undergraduate, graduate, and online degree programs, but some students may choose to transfer their Cedarville credits to a different college after they graduate from high school.

Cedarville University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the organization recognized by the United States Department of Education as responsible for accrediting degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the 19 states of the North Central region, including Iowa. Thus, college credits earned at Cedarville are eligible to transfer to any other accredited institution of higher learning in the United States.

Transfer Credits are defined as:

  • Credits that have been accepted by the receiving institution
  • Courses that have passing grades
  • Courses that appear on the student’s transcript at the receiving institution

Students need to plan carefully with an academic adviser at the institution where they wish to enroll in order to satisfy the requirements of the transfer institution. Students and parents should be aware that problems in transferring credits generally arise from three areas:

  • Course transfer policies differ from one institution to another. While one college may allow a transferred class to satisfy a general education requirement, another institution may transfer it as an elective.
  • Courses completed that are specific to a particular major at Cedarville may not be counted toward the same major at a different institution.
  • Grades of D or F are not normally transferrable for many courses, but will appear on the student’s Cedarville University transcript.

Students should work closely with an academic adviser when planning to transfer credits to other colleges or universities.
