Evaluation of Transfer Credit

While the University will generally accept transfer credit for courses with a grade of "D" or better, only courses with a "C" or better in philosophy may be applied to the 34 hours required for the major or 15 hours for the minor in philosophy. The Philosophy Department allows a maximum of 15 transfer hours to fulfill requirements for a major and 6 to fulfill requirements for a minor. No more than 9 lower-division courses may be used to fulfill major requirements, and no more than 3 lower-division transfer hours may be used for the minor. Advisors may ask for copies of syllabi, catalog descriptions, or written work for courses taken at other institutions to assist them in assessing whether transfer credit should be granted. The Commonly numbered PHH, PHI, PHM, and PHP courses (in the State University and Community College System) will automatically transfer (subject to the above limitations). Where a course taken at another institution is counted, the student's advisor will inform the Panther Degree Audit Office so that the student's audit may be corrected.
