California Intercontinental University’s Transfer Credit policy is consistent with the transfer credit policies of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) and the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC).
California Intercontinental University may award up to 90 semester units of transferable college level credit for the bachelor’s degree, up to 22 graduate credit units for the master degree and up to 9 graduate credit units for the doctorate degree.
Transfer students must meet the admission requirements in effect at the time of matriculation and must comply with the same admission procedures for each degree program as mentioned above. Upon admission, academic credits documented on official transcripts and earned at other approved or accredited educational institutions will be evaluated by the Registrar and be given transfer credit (TC) only upon a course-by-course evaluation for similar topic and content and for courses closely approximating the units or instructional hours as those offered by California Intercontinental University. Credits earned at the undergraduate level cannot be transferred to graduate courses. Similarly, credits earned in master courses cannot be transferred to doctoral courses.
The transferability of credits earned at California Intercontinental University is at the complete discretion of an institution to which students may seek to transfer. Acceptance of the degree earned from California Intercontinental University is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which students may seek to transfer. If the degree earned at California Intercontinental University is not accepted by an institution, transferring students may be required to repeat some or all of their coursework at that institution. For this reason students should ascertain that their attendance at this institution will meet their educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which they may seek to transfer after attending California Intercontinental University to evaluate transfer options.
A maximum of 30 semester units of a prospective student’s coursework may be earned by credits based on Prior Learning (Experiential) or by:
College units earned through these tests or exams must be evidenced in official transcripts of the college or university administering them, or by any other official documents reflecting the units and grades received. Students must submit a “Request for Experiential Credit Form” for a specific course upon enrollment and provide a more succinct and detailed explanation of a particular occupational experience or documentation related to the nature of the training (educational seminars or lectures, company sponsored programs, military schools, etc.) that are relevant to the course identified for possible experiential credit award. Students will be required to write an essay to document the learning experience. Upon review of the relevant information or documents submitted, the Office will determine whether to award full or partial credit for the course. A non-refundable submission fee of $100 is payable for assessing credits for prior learning experience. A per-credit unit fee is payable upon award of the credit.
California Intercontinental University uses guidelines and reference materials published by The National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs, The Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services, and The Guidelines of the Council for the Advancement of Experiential Learning to award academic credit for relevant prior learning or Experiential Learning.
