 TRANSFER CREDITS

The English department will only accept 4 transfer credits for the major (including AP, IB, CLEP), and only at the 100 level.  If a transfer student seeks more credit in the major, and has completed an AA in English or Literature at another institution, that student should​ contact the Chair of the English Department directly.  In such cases, the English department will assess if additional credit is appropriate.
