Credit Hours Transfer Policies

Students who transfer from a regionally accredited junior or community college are allowed a maximum of 72 semester hours toward the 128 credit hour minimum for graduation from Shepherd University.

In compliance with the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, students who have completed more than 72 hours of course work may select the courses they wish to have evaluated as part of their semester hours of credit counted toward graduation.

The total number of credit hours earned will be calculated in the student’s overall grade point average. Credits from universities that do not have regional accreditation are assigned on the basis used by the state university in the state where the nonaccredited university is located.

After enrollment at Shepherd University, a student may not transfer to this institution any courses in major, minor, or teaching fields except by advanced permission of Shepherd faculty. Advance permission will be required to take any course at another institution and transfer it to Shepherd University.
