Transfer of Credits

Students may obtain credit by attending another college or university if the following conditions are met:

  1. The proposed institution of study must be accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies of the United States and must offer courses equivalent to those at Johnson C. Smith University.
  2. Approval of transfer credit is to be secured in writing by the
    student from instructors, advisors, chairs of the departments at Johnson C. Smith and the Registrar by obtaining the proper signature on a Transfer of Credit form prior to enrollment in the course. The form is obtainable from the Registrar’s Office and, after being properly executed, returned to the Registrar’s Office. Elective credits may be received for certain courses which do not correspond to any offered at Johnson C. Smith, provided approval is first received from the appropriate department chair.
  3. Approved courses in which the student receives a grade of C or better are transferable. Quality points and grades are not transferable; credit hours are transferable. Credit with grade below "C" will not be accepted. Where quarter hours are taken, they will be converted at the rate of five quarter hours to equal three semester hours.
  4. Normally, no more than fifteen hours, excluding course work through the Charlotte Area Educational Consortium (CAEC), may be transferred.
