Coursework previously completed at another institution or through the Prior Learning Assessment process will be evaluated relative to its equivalency to Johnson College courses and to the specific major. The appropriate Department Chairperson and the Registrar will make final decisions on acceptance of such coursework. Students who wish to transfer courses must follow the procedures below:
The College accepts a maximum of 30 credits from another institution. Of the remaining credits required for graduation, a minimum of 35 must be completed at Johnson College.
Only courses completed with a grade of “C” or higher will be considered for transfer credit. (Credit requested under PLA format may require an equivalent grade of “B” or higher.)
Radiologic Technology courses are not typically granted transfer credit. The Department Chair and Clinical Coordinator may grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Only courses completed with a grade of C+ or better will be considered for transfer credit.
Transfer credit will appear on the student’s transcript but only credits from Johnson College will be used in computing the student’s Grade Point Average (GPA) and eligibility for academic honors. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all courses have been evaluated prior to registration to avoid duplication of courses.
Coursework completed within the past five years will be evaluated according to current standards. Coursework completed more than five years ago will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis by the Sr. Director of Academics, Registrar and the appropriate Department Chairperson.
Once enrolled at Johnson College, students may transfer no more than six additional credits, without receiving prior approval, based upon a demonstrated hardship, from the Registrar’s Office. Enrolled students must also receive approval for Off-Campus study.
Approval for Off-Campus Study
Johnson College will accept credits from other institutions for courses taken by a current student provided the student receives approval from the appropriate Department Chairperson prior to registering for the course and completes the necessary paperwork. The student also must provide the Johnson College Registrar with an official transcript verifying a grade of “C” or higher upon completion of the course. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that these transcripts are forwarded to the Registrar. Approval forms may be obtained through the Registrar’s Office or under the “Forms – Approval for Off-Campus Study” option on the Registrar’s webpage.
