Credit Transfer Policy and Articulation Agreements

University of the Ozarks has established the following policy for transfer of credit from other institutions of higher education (Printable Version)

Transfer of Credit

New Students

All entering freshman who have earned college credits through concurrent or summer programs and all transfer students must submit official copies of transcripts from each institution of higher education attended.  The work will be evaluated by the university registrar based on

  1. accreditation of the transfer institution through a regional accrediting body or, for international institutions, recognition by the country's Ministry of Education as a degree granting institution;
  2. earned grades of C- or higher or documentation showing grades of P are equivalent to C- or higher; and
  3. applicability of the course towards a degree program (such as associate's or bachelor's degree) at the transfer institution.

Students will receive no more than sixty-six hours of credit from junior or community colleges and/or no more than nine hours of credit for correspondence or on-line courses.  Courses which meet the criteria for transfer may fulfill general education requirements as determined by the registrar or may fulfill major requirements as determined by the student's discipline advisor when the student has formally declared his or her major.

Current Students

Current students must obtain prior approval from the discipline advisor, the chair of the division in which the course will count for credit, the General Education Committee Chair in some circumstances, and the vice president for academic affairs before taking courses for transfer from other institutions of higher education.  The approval for the courses will be based on

  1. accreditation of the transfer institution through a regional accrediting body or, for international institutions, recognition by the country's Ministry of Education as a degree granting institution;
  2. applicability of the course towards a degree program (such as associate's or bachelor's degree) at the transfer institution; and
  3. the student’s total accumulation of credits towards the maximum of sixty-six hours from a junior or community college and/or the total accumulation of credits towards the maximum of nine hours of correspondence or on-line courses.

Further, students must earn grades of at least C- or P, where documentation shows the grade of P is equivalent to C- or higher, to fulfill the transfer criteria.  Approval forms are available from the Office of Academic Affairs or from the Office of the Registrar.   Once the coursework is completed, the student must request an official transcript to be sent to the university registrar, who will complete the transfer evaluation based on the approvals granted.
