Transfer Policies

After the student has been fully admitted, the College completes an official evaluation to identify the applicability of previous work to the student’s expressed major and degree program.

A maximum of 90 semester credit hours from an accredited four-year college or university and extra-institutional sources may be applied toward the minimum 120 semester hours required for a Bachelor’s degree. Of these 90 semester hours, a maximum of 66 semester credit hours may be from a community/ vocational/ technical college or other extra-institutional sources. To be considered for possible transfer, courses must have been completed with a grade of “C-” or higher. Developmental or transitional courses (non-college level) will not be accepted.

All students must complete a minimum of 50% of the hours required for the major/endorsement requirements (excluding General Studies) at Peru State.

Students who seek admission and are accepted while on probation from their last college are placed on probation and are subject to all Peru State policies of probation.

Students who have been suspended from another college will not be considered for admission until the period of suspension at their previous institution has expired and the facts of the dismissal are provided.

Students who discontinue their attendance at Peru State and then attend another college or university before seeking readmission are classified as transfer students.

Transfer students who have completed technical Associate’s Degrees or equivalent will be eligible for the Bachelor of Applied Science degree completion program. See the School of Professional Studies section of this catalog for more detail.
