Holy Apostles Transfer Credits Policy

Holy Apostles accepts transfer credits from accredited colleges, and those that have been recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE CREDIT), for all degree and certificate programs, provided the credits are in courses applicable to the particular degree program being pursued at Holy Apostles. Acceptance of transfer credits is at the discretion of the Academic Dean.

The number of transfer credits accepted into each degree program is as follows:

  • Associate of Arts                                             30  (45 per an Articulation Agreement)
  • Bachelor of Arts                                              60
  • Master of Arts                                                   6
  • Non-Degree Graduate Certificate                 0
  • Post Master’s Certificate in Theology           6
  • Master of Divinity                                           60
  • Certificate of Preparation for Ordination  60

Transfer credits must not have already been applied to a degree, except in the case of credits assigned to an Associate’s degree being used toward the B.A. program at Holy Apostles.

Students transferring from the Adler-Aquinas Institute/Ignatius-Angelicum Liberal Studies Program/Angelicum Academy’s Great Books or Theology Online program may review the Normal Distribution of AAI Transfer Credits document onto which the Great Books and Theoloy Online courses have been mapped to see what additional coursework must be done for program completion.

Students intending to transfer credits must apply for Advanced Standing at the time of matriculation. Advanced Standing allows a student to enter Holy Apostles College as a first time student, while entering a program with a higher class status than first semester, first year, due to transferred credits. All official transcripts must be received by the Registrar by the time of matriculation for transfer credits to be considered.

To transfer credits from courses being taken at another academic institution simultaneously with one’s working through a program at Holy Apostles, the student must have the prior permission of the Academic Dean as concerns the selection of courses. Official transcripts must be sent to the Office of the Registrar as soon as the courses are completed.

It is the policy of Holy Apostles not to accept any undergraduate credits for transfer which carry a grade of less than a C- grade or any graduate credits carrying less than a B grade.
