TRANSFER STUDENTS
A student transferring from another college or university is required to be in “good academic standing.” Credit may be given at Rose-Hulman for work done elsewhere which is considered to be equivalent of the corresponding course at Rose-Hulman if a grade of C or better was earned.

Credits earned elsewhere will be evaluated by the head of the department in which the courses would be taught at Rose-Hulman. Final acceptance of the credit is at the discretion of the head of the department in which the student is seeking a degree.

Students enrolled at Rose-Hulman who plan to take courses at another institution with the intention of transferring the credit to Rose-Hulman should obtain approval in advance from the head of the department concerned.
