A Transfer Student is one who has been enrolled as a full-time student for at least one term at an accredited college or university. Transfer Students are subject to all academic and non-academic rules and regulations of the Institute. A student may be admitted to Rose-Hulman as a Transfer Student provided that the official transcripts of the work at other accredited institutions clearly indicate that the student is in good academic standing and has been accorded an honorable dismissal from the previous institutions attended.
A student who applies for admission as a Transfer Student may be required to provide the catalogue descriptions and the title and author of the text(s) used in each course for which Transfer Credit is sought. The applicant's record and transcripts will be examined by the Admissions Office, which will give the student a preliminary evaluation of which courses are likely to transfer.
Evaluation of credits
Normally, a meeting for Transfer Students is held prior to the beginning of the term to evaluate Transfer Credits. Each course for which the student seeks Transfer Credit will be evaluated in writing by the Head of the Department (or designated representative) in which that course would be offered or, if the course is one not normally offered at Rose-Hulman, by the department most nearly related. This evaluation will include a statement of the course(s) at Rose-Hulman for which the Transfer Credit is acceptable. These evaluations will be forwarded to the Registrar and become part of the student's academic record. They will also be used by the student and the advisor to formulate a proposed plan of study and a tentative date of graduation.
