  5. Courses that do not earn credit hours and/or quality points at the transferring institution will not be accepted.

  7. *Students who earned a “P” or “S” grade from a regionally accredited institution during the Spring and Summer 2020 semesters will be awarded credit as a passing grade. These semesters are categorized as times of COVID-19 disruption which would require no further proof of a “C” grade or better.
