For Transfer and Evening/Weekend Students
Transfer students enter Grand View with varying amounts of credit previously earned. Based on that number of credits, the number of “encounters” with the essential core competencies can be decreased:
0-27 credits transferred: 4 encounters with each competency are required.
28-59 credits transferred: 3 encounters with each competency are required.
60-89 credits transferred: 2 encounters with each competency are required.
90+ credits transferred: 1 encounter with each competency are required.
Students transferring to Grand View with 20 credits or more are exempt from Core
Seminar 1. Students transferring to Grand View with a Bachelor’s Degree are exempt from Core Seminars 1 & 2.
Transferred courses will be evaluated individually to satisfy requirements within the “Ways of Knowing” categories. Articulation Agreements are established with several community colleges to outline how these classes transfer. You can review those HERE.
Students transferring to Grand View with an Associate of Arts degree or a Bachelor’s degree will satisfy these categories as follows:
Associate of Arts Degree
The Associate of Arts degree (AA) satisfies the Grand View University General Education Core requirements for the baccalaureate degree except for the composition and quantitative reasoning courses (unless fulfilled by transfer coursework), Core Seminars II and III, and the required number of outcome iterations (number determined by class status on entry to the University; see General Education Core section of the catalog for further details.) The student must have graduated from an accredited institution and earned a 2.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 system based on work completed at all institutions attended, and have satisfied Grand View's composition and quantitative reasoning courses. Students holding Associate in Arts degrees from accredited institutions based outside the United States are required to satisfy Grand View's composition and quantitative reasoning courses. The maximum number of transfer credits accepted from junior/community colleges is 66 semester hours. All junior/community college transfer credit is considered lower division credit. Students holding any Associate's degree other than an Associate of Arts degree are not exempt from the general degree requirements
Bachelor of Arts Degree
Students holding a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited instituion based in the United States are considered to have fulfilled all Grand View University General Education Core requirements except for the completion of one interation of each of the Core outcomes and Core Seminar III. Students holding baccalaureate degrees from accredited institutions based outside the United States are frequently considered to have fulfilled all General Education Core requirements except for the completion of one iteration of each of the Core outcomes, Core Seminar III, and composition, though Grand View reserves the right to make a determination of comparability. To earn the additional degree, students must complete the following: 30-hour residency requirement, one interation of each outcome, Core Seminar III, requisite courses for the major, and prerequisites for those courses.
