Transfer credit evaluation and acceptance
Montreat College endorses the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, which can be viewed at www.northcarolina.edu. Transfer students who have earned an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree from an institution and who meet the minimum requirements for admission to Montreat College will receive transfer credit for all eligible courses subject to normal transfer credit policy. No more than 66 semester hours may be transferred from a two-year school. Courses will be transferred as “P” and considered as earned credit but will not affect your GPA or graduation honors.
Only work from a regionally accredited school that received a grade of C or better will be accepted in transfer.
Credits from regionally accredited institutions will be considered for courses for which Montreat College has no equivalent course, provided that the transferred course is considered within the general framework of the liberal arts curriculum.
Only courses that are academic in nature and in purpose will be accepted in transfer. Vocational training courses, such as air-conditioning repair, electrical circuitry, welding, and keypunch, are not accepted. Some vocational courses that are academic in content, such as a course in anatomy and physiology, may be considered for up to 30 semester hours. Any vocational course accepted toward a general education requirement will not apply to this 30-hour limit.
