Academic Regulations and Policies

Transfer Credit Policy

Credits for letter graded courses earned at regionally accredited institutions will transfer to Viterbo University. Courses in which a student has earned a grade of C or higher will be considered for transfer to Viterbo University. Credit for courses where the earned grades are less than a C are not eligible for transfer. A student may be required to repeat a transferred major or required support course where the grade requirement of the department or accrediting body is higher than a C. Individual schools or departments may also require that coursework in the major be current with academic and professional standards.

 

Viterbo University recognizes the value of career education provided by regionally accredited technical colleges and strives to provide opportunities for those students to combine their technical education with advanced coursework in their major field and a background in the liberal arts that results in a baccalaureate degree. Credits which are a part of an associate degree program will be considered for transfer to Viterbo University.

 

Courses of a remedial or pre-college nature will not be accepted for transfer, except when needed to meet other college-level course prerequisites.

 

All credits eligible for transfer from two-year institutions will be transferred to Viterbo University. Students must, however, satisfy all support and discipline-specific coursework for the major. Every student must earn a minimum of 43 credits in upper division coursework as required by the university’s accrediting body.

Students enrolled at Viterbo University who wish to take a course at another institution must obtain prior approval to insure the course will transfer to Viterbo University. The form for this approval is available in the registrar’s office or on the office’s Web page.

 

Students who transfer to Viterbo University with an earned baccalaureate, Associate of Arts (A.A.), or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree from a regionally accredited college or university will have the Foundation requirements of the core curriculum waived (unless required by the students’ major as a program requirement), except the information fluency requirement (a one-credit course or included in part of a course within the major.) A student with earned baccalaureate, A. A., or A. S. degree from a regionally accredited college or university will also have the Ways of Thinking requirements of the core curriculum waived, except the theological inquiry, integrating faith and reasoning, and philosophical and moral inquiry requirements (unless required by the students’ major as a program requirement). The baccalaureate, A.A. or A.S. degree must be completed and earned prior to enrollment at Viterbo University.

 

Students who transfer to Viterbo University with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree from a regionally accredited college or university will have the Foundation requirements of the core curriculum waived (unless required by the students’ major as a program requirement), except the information fluency requirement (a one-credit course or included in part of a course within the major.). The A.A.S. degree must be completed and earned prior to enrollment at Viterbo University.

 

Students who transfer to Viterbo University, into the BSN completion program, with a diploma from a three-year diploma nursing program will have the Foundation requirements of the core curriculum waived (unless required by the students’ major as a program requirement), except the information fluency requirement (a one-credit course or included in part of a course within the major).
