Advanced Standing

Ohio Christian University may accept up to nine graduate semester credits in transfer from a regionally accredited institution. If graduate credit is from an institution that is not regionally accredited but meets all other stipulations, the credit will be accepted only after probationary study at OCU of 18 graduate credit hours and achievement of 3.0 average or better. The following criteria are used to assess transfer credit:

  • The course is no more than 10 years old.
  • The course is equivalent to the course being substituted.
  • A minimum grade of “B-” was earned for the course.
  • The course was not earned for a degree that was already conferred.

An advanced standing request must be made prior to the semester in which the course in question occurs.
