Transferring College Credit | Capital University, Columbus Ohio


Transferring College Credit

  • Transcript Review

    Once you're accepted, we will review the official college transcripts for course equivalency. You will receive a copy of the degree audit which will list the General Education Courses that transfer along with a list of all courses that transfer. A faculty advisor will determine how the courses apply to the degree, so you should contact the Admission office to schedule a meeting with a faculty advisor to find out how your major classes transfer and how long it will take to complete your degree.

    About Transfer Credits

    • Capital will award college credit for all courses successfully completed at a regionally accredited college or university, except for developmental level courses.
    • The department chair/academic advisor for the program in which you enroll must approve the acceptance of these credits toward a degree program.
    • Credit will be granted on a semester-equivalent basis for courses successfully completed with a grade of C- or better, unless the student has received an associate's or bachelor's degree at that institution. In those cases, all courses (D or higher) going toward the degree shall transfer. The acceptance of credits toward Capital's degree program requires the approval of the program in which the student enrolls.
    • To receive a major from Capital University you must complete 12 semester hours in the major in residence at Capital University. No student may be awarded a major by a department or college unless core requirements of the college in which that major is located are met.  


    Capital University has articulation agreements with the following institutions:
    • Central Ohio Technical College
    • Columbus State Community College
    Please make sure you are selecting the appropriate guide. You may need to use both the Quarter and Semester guides if you took classes both before and after Summer 2012.
