Academic Policies and Procedures

Certification to a Degree-Granting School

University College will certify (transfer) students to a degree-granting school when they have met the following criteria:

  1. Completed the minimum number of credit hours and specific courses required for admission to a particular school
  2. Achieved the required grade point average for admission to a specific school
  3. Formally declared a major by following the procedures necessary to record the intended major in the university student record system

Upon completion of 56 credit hours, students must be certified to a degree-granting school. Some schools have competitive admissions and require submission of an application at least a month before the start of a semester. In addition, if students are uncertain about degree requirements or cannot decide on a major, it is essential that they talk with an academic advisor before reaching the 56 credit hour limit.
