Transfer Credit Policy

Methodist University generally evaluates credits for courses completed with a grade of C or higher from other regionally accredited institutions of higher education. Please see the current Academic Catalog to view the specific policy in more detail.

Maximum Number of Transfer Credits

The maximum number of credits from all sources combined is 93 credits. A maximum of 64 credits of course work will be accepted from two-year post-secondary institutions.

How Can I Find Out Which Courses Transfer?

Students can view the list of courses and their equivalencies through TES Course equivalences. They are subject to change as institutions and updated courses are frequently added and amended.

Prospective students should utilize Transferology to request evaluations of missing course equivalencies, view majors available at Methodist, and request an appointment with an Admissions Counselor at Methodist.

Current students should always consult with their academic advisor and submit a request for a visiting student letter prior to taking courses at another institution.

How to Use Transferology

  • Create a Transferology account.
  • On the “Will My Courses Transfer” page under “Courses” enter in the information for the college or university where you received your current credits. Select the term and year you took those courses and then search for your courses by academic department.
  • You will see a list of your current courses in the “My Courses” section on the right side of the screen, click “Search for Matches” to see how your courses will transfer to Methodist University.

North Carolina Community College Articulation Agreement

In response to the North Carolina Community Colleges’ request for Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, Methodist University agrees to transfer the courses as stated in the agreement and in accordance with the policies outlined in the Methodist University academic catalogue. A maximum of 64 credits of course work will be accepted from two-year post-secondary institutions. Course grades of less than C will not be accepted.
