Credit From Other Colleges & Universities

grand view does not limit the number of credits accepted from other four-year colleges and universities.

grand view accepts up to 75 semester hours of credit from community colleges. 

articulation agreements between one college or university and another allow for seamless transfer of credit. the community colleges in iowa are participating in a joint project to develop common course numbers to help with the transfer process. here's a list of courses that at least eight of the iowa community colleges have in common, along with grand view’s equivalent course. please note that this is not a complete list of courses that grand view accepts for transfer.

grand view has an articulation agreement with des moines area community college (dmacc). we are in the process of updating agreements with other community colleges. please refer to the list of courses or email rachel baron, transcript analyst, with any questions.

cross enrollment

1975年,得梅因地区高等教育联盟实施了一项交叉招生计划,将课程范围扩展至就读宏伟,德雷克和得梅因地区社区大学的学生。在该计划下,全视野的全日制学生可以在秋季和春季学期在德雷克大学或得梅因地区社区学院修读最多三个学分的课程。在这三个学分限制内,学生将负责所有书籍,用品,费用和额外的学费。 Grand View大学注册处负责协调此过程,并且必须在注册课程前通知。交叉注册课程不会中断或增加最后30小时的全景视图要求。

transfer credit policy

transfer from an accredited institution

Grand View大学遵循美国大学注册商和招生人员协会(aacrao)发布的转移学分惯例。根据aacrao的说法,从一个机构到另一机构的信贷转移至少涉及三个方面的考虑。在评估转移信用时,整体视图将考虑以下因素:

  1. the educational quality of the learning experience,
  2. the comparability of the nature, content, and level of the learning experience, and
  3. the appropriateness and applicability of the learning experience to the programs offered at grand view.

the department chair of the courses being evaluated has the ultimate approval of transferability of the courses. official transcripts must be submitted from all institutions attended whether coursework was completed or not. transcripts must be mailed directly from the originating institution to grand view university.

只有在大视野下获得的学分和学分才能用于计算学生的累积学分平均值。从认可机构转来的d-(d减)或更高的学分可用于毕业,并可用于满足特定课程的要求和先决条件,但不一定要用于学生的专业。被授予拉丁荣誉的学生必须从宏伟视野中至少获得45个学分,然后才能计算平均成绩。初级/社区大学接受的转学分的最大数量为75个学期学分。所有转学课程作业都在原始机构的课程级别接受。

transfer from a non-accredited institution

grand view university may refuse to recognize credit from an institution that is not accredited by a regional accrediting organization or may accept credit for approved core and/or major courses successfully passed with a c- (c minus) or above. credit may be given for courses equivalent to the core courses required of every grand view graduate.

associate of arts or baccalaureate degrees from an institution which is not regionally accredited will not automatically satisfy the grand view general education core requirements; however, credit may be given for courses equivalent to the core courses required of every grand view graduate.

由注册办公室和专业部门酌情决定,课程可计入专业。对于选修或职业技术学分,可以考虑其他课程。 。这些学分计入毕业所需的小时数,但不满足任何特定学位要求。课程的可转让性遵循从认可机构转学中概述的原则。

no grades from non-accredited institutions are averaged into the cumulative gpa.

transfer of coursework completed outside of the united states of america

要获得在美国(美国)以外完成的课程功劳的学分,学生必须让成绩单评估机构在美国对成绩单进行评估,费用由学生承担。评估必须逐课程完成。成绩单评估机构的评估为评估国际课程工作提供了指导;但是,宏伟大学保留确定课程和学位的可转移性的权利。如果要求,学生可能需要向整体视图提供有关课程作业的其他信息。要获得英语作文的转学分,国际学生必须从美国认可的机构修读同等课程,或通过大观作文要求。在某些情况下,如果课程工作是由美国的大学或大学进行笔录的,则可以授予转学分。出国或在海上学期学习的赞助者,但这种情况将根据具体情况进行评估。
