Stratford University's Transfer Credit Policy

Stratford University has established a transfer credit policy consistent with accreditation requirements. The policy is designed to

  • facilitate the transfer of students and credits from one college or university to another
  • assure maximum utilization of prior learning
  • encourage students to advance as far through the educational system as they can in pursuit of their goals

What can transfer from your previous college to Stratford?

Transfer credits may be awarded for courses:

  • Taken from nationally or regionally accredited institutions
  • That must be three or more semester-credits or 4.5 or more quarter-credits
  • Completed with a grade of C or higher
  • Coinciding with the University’s program outline.

For courses in quickly evolving disciplines such a s Cybersecurity or Digital Forensics, the amount of time elapsed since the courses were taken may affect the transferability of courses. The length of time since the course was taken and the student’s background determines whether the courses can be transferred. Courses with other grades may be transferred in at the discretion of the designated department representative. Additional documentation in the form of course descriptions, syllabi, or a competency test may be requested, if needed, to assure the transferred course is equivalent to one of the courses required for completion of a certificate, diploma, or degree at Stratford University. Credits based on clock hours are not transferrable to Stratford University.
