Transfer credit is awarded for courses successfully completed at a regionally accredited institution or an institution whose accrediting organization is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Official transcripts from each institution attended must be submitted in order for the Office of the Registrar to complete a formal transfer evaluation. Courses completed outside of the United States require students to submit an official foreign credential evaluation and translation along with their official transcripts. Each transfer evaluation is reviewed by the Office for Academic Affairs and/or appropriate college faculty.
A course evaluated as equivalent to a Lynn course is accepted as that course. A course evaluated as not equivalent is accepted as an elective. If a preliminary evaluation is completed for a student based on an unofficial transcript, that evaluation will not be considered final until official documentation is received and reviewed for accuracy.
Although credits transfer in from other institutions, grades do not. Transfer courses are listed on the transcript with a grade of “T.” A student’s Lynn grade point average is based solely on courses completed at Lynn University.
