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.
