Course Transfer/Evaluation

The maximum number of transferred credit hours that may be applied toward an ACU undergraduate degree is 96. No more than 66 semester hours of credit may be from a community, junior or other two-year college.

About course transfer:

  • Transfer courses with a grade of C or higher from regionally accredited institutions will be posted to the student's ACU records and may count toward graduation if the credits are appropriate.
  • Transfer courses will be posted at the same level they were taken at a previous institution. ACU accepts only work equivalent or comparable to work offered at ACU.
  • Grades for transfer courses are not included in the student's GPA at ACU.
  • ACU does not accept developmental or remedial courses, institution-specific courses, or courses in which the grade received was D or lower.

To view a list of classes that will transfer to ACU the Texas Common Course Numbering System is a helpful tool. Click on the "Compare Institutions" option to evaluate the compatibility of your class with an ACU class.
