Policies on Transferring
Credit from Other Institutions

Atlantis University may accept transfer credits applicable to an applicant’s program of study from another institution. To apply for transfer credit, students must send an official copy of their transcript to the Academic Department for review and complete the corresponding paperwork for each transfer course. A transfer student’s transcript(s) becomes part of the official student permanent record. Atlantis University, upon evaluation, will determine how many credits, if any, will apply toward a degree.

Credit may be granted only for courses in which grades of “C” or better have been earned (2.00 GPA or higher).

For undergraduate degrees students must complete at a minimum 25% of an undergraduate program at Atlantis University.

For graduate degrees, students must complete at a minimum 50% of a graduate program at Atlantis University.

Veteran’s Credit for Previous Education or Training

A Veterans Administration benefit recipient is responsible to report all education and training. The University evaluates and grants credit, if appropriate, with the training time shortened, the tuition reduced proportionately, and the VA and student notified.

Transfer of Credits from Atlantis University

Students who are interested in continuing their education at an institution other than Atlantis University should first make inquiry at the institution they plan to attend to determine credits and requirements needed for entrance to that institution.

Transferability of credits is at the discretion of a receiving institution. Atlantis University cannot assure transfer of credit; however, Atlantis University is a nationally accredited institution, participates in the Statewide Course Numbering System, and has entered into articulation agreements with some local colleges and universities.

Students should contact the Director of Academic Affairs for specific information.International Students (I-20) Transfer Process
