Transfer of Credit
Enrolled Duquesne University students seeking to take courses elsewhere for transfer toward their Duquesne degree must meet with their advisor and obtain written permission to do so before enrolling. Courses must be taken at a regionally accredited institution and must be passed with a minimum grade of a "C" (2.0) or better. Schools may impose stricter requirements based on the nature of the course. For all transfer work, official transcripts must be sent to the advisor upon completion of the course.
Students who enrolled initially as transfer students are advised that they are not permitted to transfer more than 60 credits from a two-year institution. In addition, enrolled students who have earned or will have earned a total of 60 credits prior to a transfer enrollment are not permitted to take additional coursework from any two-year institution. When transferring from a four-year institution, some schools permit a maximum of 90 credits in transfer, although students should confirm any school-specific policies. In both cases, the 60 and 90 credit maximum policies are inclusive of college transfer credit, CLEP, Advanced Placement, and Credit-by-Exam. Credit that does not apply toward the Duquesne University degree will not be accepted in transfer. On a school-by-school basis, some articulation agreements may exceed these restrictions. Bachelor degree candidates are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits at Duquesne University. In addition, the last 30 credits of a student's program must me completed in residence at Duquesne University.
