2005-2007 Academic Catalog
The registrar administers the credit evaluation process for transfer purposes. Generally, college-level course work from regionally accredited institutions of higher education will be considered for transfer toward the College of St. Catherine (CSC) degree. To be accepted, transfer course work must be college level, not vocational-technical, and must carry a grade of C- or better. Credits will be transferred (after conversion to semester credits when necessary) for all approved course work and will be included in your cumulative earned credit hours and cumulative grade point average at St. Catherine’s. In order for courses to be counted as equivalent to CSC courses, the equivalency must be approved by the appropriate department chair or program director.
Credit earned by correspondence, extension or certain other special programs may be applied toward the CSC degree requirements when such credit has been awarded as degree credit from regionally accredited institutions.
Courses and credits from nonaccredited institutions and from competency-based programs will be accepted at the discretion of the academic dean. When credit is awarded toward the CSC degree from these institutions, a grade of Satisfactory (without grade points) will be recorded. Evaluation of course work from nonaccredited institutions may be postponed until you have shown competency to complete advanced work successfully.
AGE OF CREDITS
CERTIFICATE AND ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
In some programs, courses that are prerequisite to admission to a specific professional program must have been completed within seven years prior to enrollment at the College of St. Catherine. The seven year limit also applies to some program required liberal arts courses. Special considerations regarding age of credit will be given to students with a baccalaureate or higher degree.
Department chairs may impose time limits for courses applied to the degree, if appropriate.
