Transfer Credit Policy

King University accepts applicable qualifying transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges and universities. Only grades of C- or better will qualify a course as transfer credit. A maximum of 76 semester hours of accepted credit may be applied to a student’s academic program. There is no time limit for coursework being transferred in for general education credit. Some King University programs may not accept transfer courses deemed out-of-date based on when the students completed the coursework. All transfer coursework is evaluated based on the educational quality of the coursework; the comparability of nature, content, and level to King University coursework; and the appropriateness and applicability of the coursework to programs at King University.

The Transfer Credit Acceptance policy can be found in the Academic Catalog within section 2.05.590.

Official Transfer Evaluation

Official transfer evaluations are available within the student portal after The Office of Registration and Records has completed the final review of prior credit. All transfer coursework is evaluated based on the educational quality of the coursework; the comparability of the nature, content, and level to King University coursework; and the appropriateness and applicability of the coursework to programs at King University. Generally, credit is not given for course work unrelated to King's offerings (e.g.,auto mechanics and other terminal vocational, technical and occupational courses). Developmental, orientation, student assembly and internships are not transferable.
