Transfer Credit is credit earned by enrollment in, and
successful completion of, a course at another institution; this
credit is then applied toward graduation requirements at
Rose-Hulman. The limitations below apply to all students who are
transferring credit - both Transfer Students and Rose-Hulman
students who wish to take a course at another institution. Seniors
who plan to transfer credits to Rose-Hulman after their last term
in residence should be aware of special limitations that apply in
addition to the ones listed below. See also, Summer
For the procedure used to evaluate credits transferred by
students entering Rose-Hulman, see
- Transfer Credit is accepted only from accredited colleges and
- The grade earned for a course taken at another institution must
be equivalent to a grade of "C" or better.
- Transfer Credit will not be granted for a course taken on a Pass/Fail
- Normally courses taken by correspondence, online, or as a video
course are not accepted. In cases where it is accepted, full
documentation of the course will be required and a personal
interview with the Department Head may be required.
- Grades earned in Transfer Credit courses are not recorded on
the student's Rose-Hulman permanent record and are not averaged
into the cumulative GPA.
- A student who plans to take a course elsewhere and transfer the
credit to Rose-Hulman must have the approval of the head of the
department in which that course normally would be offered or which
is most nearly related. The student should seek this approval prior
to enrolling in the course.
- In the case of a student who is suspended from Rose-Hulman, the
Rules and Discipline Committee may stipulate that the Institute
will not accept Transfer Credit earned by the student at another
school during the period of suspension. For more information in
these circumstances, see Discipline & Suspension.
The student must complete a "Transfer Credit Evaluation Form"
available in the Registrar's office.
