Brenau University Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policy

A grade of “C” or better is required for transfer. Transfer credit is awarded for courses taken at regionally accredited institutions and can not be awarded based on placement tests or non-class credit awarded at other institutions.

The university will accept ALL liberal education courses regardless of the date of satisfactory completion unless the liberal education course is also a major course.

The university will accept major courses taken within 15 years unless listed below.

The university will accept major courses taken within 5 years for the specific courses listed below.

Exceptions to any policy above will go to the dean of the appropriate school for a final decision.

Courses with technical content (e.g. computer programming/applications, etc.) taken over five years prior to admission may not be eligible for transfer.

Changing majors after an admissions decision has been made may alter the eligibility of course that have been already designated on a previous program plan.

Developmental Studies and English as a Second Language Courses do not transfer.

In no case will a student be permitted to transfer more than 65 semester hours of credit (97 quarter hours) from two year institutions to a Brenau program. This 65-hour limit represents the total of all credit taken at all 2 year colleges the student might have attended before applying for admission to Brenau. This 65-hour maximum does not affect Brenau’s minimal residency requirement.

Departments reserve the right to require a student to take a prerequisite course for a Brenau course at a four year institution.
