What Credits Transfer
This system is used to determine how courses completed at other institutions are equated as transfer credit at Guilford College. This information is taken from the database maintained by Admission and is the same information used to award transfer credit. If you do not see the course you are seeking to equate, it is because that course has not been evaluated.
FOR INFORMATION REGARDING AP (COLLEGE BOARD ADVANCED PLACEMENT), CLEP (COLLEGE LEVEL EXAM PROGRAM) OR IB (INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE) CHOOSE "AA" AS STATE.
For More Information
If you have questions regarding transfer credits, please contact Page Stroud, assistant director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (336) 316-2305.
As a service to our applicants, we will pay for and request your official transcripts. However if you are applying for the Fall 2012 semester there is not enough time for us to obtain your official transcripts so you will need to provide them. You may submit unofficial transcripts for decision purposes as long as there are no holds on your official transcripts. If you choose to submit unofficial transcripts, complete a printable college transcript request form for each college you’ve attended and a printable high school transcript request form and mail the request form(s) to us at the address below. We will request your transcripts after you submit your application. We require that these forms be mailed to us so that you can sign them. Schools will not release your transcripts without your signature. We only provide this service for institutions within the United States. For all international transcripts, we require a World Education Services, Inc. evaluation. Please note that we do not send for official transcripts during the three weeks prior to a semester.
Before an application can be reviewed, a transfer student must present an official transcript from each college attended. Transfer credit is evaluated on a course-by-course basis, and credit is granted only for courses with a grade of C- or higher. The credits as well as the course itself will transfer. The grade does not transfer, leaving the student’s Guilford GPA unaffected. There is no expiration on transfer credits.
A maximum of 32 credits may be transferred from non-regionally accredited educational institutions, a maximum of 64 credits may be transferred from all regionally accredited two-year colleges, and no maximum is placed on the number of credits that may be transferred from regionally accredited four-year institutions.
Guilford College does not award academic credit for coursework taken on a non-credit basis; nor does Guilford award credit for job-related experience or experiential learning.
To graduate, transfer students must complete a minimum of 32 credits at Guilford College and satisfy all degree requirements. A minimum of 128 semester credits is required to graduate, and at least half of the major and half of the minor courses must be taken at Guilford College. All general education requirements must also be met, whether taken at Guilford College or elsewhere.
