How We Evaluate Your Transferred Credits

  • Only those courses required in the desired program will be considered.
  • Courses must be equivalent in content and credit hours to those required in the desired program.
  • Grades must be “C” or higher, based on NHTI standards.
  • Science and other technical courses taken more than five years prior to the desired date of entry must be repeated to be applied toward most Allied Health programs; this time limit may also apply towards some computer courses; final decisions rest with the department chair.
  • Most other general education courses do not have time limits, but final decisions rest with the department chair.
  • If you want to transfer credit for prior college coursework completed at an institution outside of the U.S., you will need to provide an official foreign credential evaluation to the Admissions Office for review; please refer to this list of accredited credential evaluation services.

Alternate Sources of Credit

  • You may be eligible for college credit for your military training, experience, or coursework that is recognized by the American Council on Education. You will need to have an official copy of your military transcript sent to the Admission Office for review and evaluation.
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) exams – Submit score reports from the International Baccalaureate Organization. Of the two IB examination levels (Higher Level and Standard Level), only the Higher Level examinations where a score of 5, 6, or 7 has been achieved will be considered for transfer credit. Credit will not be given for Standard Level examinations.
  • CLEP and Advanced Placement– Submit score reports from College Board. If you have taken both AP and IB examinations, you cannot receive credit for both.
  • Challenge Exams, Credit by Exam and Pass/Fail courses taken at other institutions cannot be considered for transfer credit.
