Determining Transfer Course Equivalencies
For transfer credit to fulfill a specific Kettering College course requirement, the course for which transfer credit is desired must be closely equivalent in content and approximately equivalent in credit hours to the required course. If content equivalency is not met, the student may be required to take additional coursework to achieve close content equivalency.
The Transfer Evaluation Committee will evaluate and award as appropriate transfer credit for basic or general education courses at the undergraduate level as defined in the transfer credit policies.
Courses described as program of study or didactic courses may be evaluated by department chairs to determine content and credit equivalency. Department chairs will submit a written recommendation of transfer credit to the Records Office. To meet residency requirements, limits on transfer credit remain the same.
