Transfer of Credit(s)
The school will accept transfer of credit on an individual basis. Maximum nursing courses that could be transferred are 40%. General education and science courses could be transferred 100% if approved by School Director.
EHA makes no representation or guarantee regarding the transfer of credits to other institutions. Acceptance of transfer credit is always at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students planning to attend other institutions are encouraged to check that school’s policy regarding the transfer of credits.
In turn, Evolution Health Academy (EHA) reserves the right of discretion where other institution’s credits are concerned. Students seeking to transfer credits into EHA must submit an official transcript from the institution where the credits originated. Original transcripts must be sent directly from that institution to the Director of Education (DOE) and come in a sealed envelope. The student may be given an estimate of potential transfer credits based on an unofficial transcript; however, the student will have 45 days from date of the estimate in which to procure official transcripts. If EHA does not receive official transcripts from all eligible colleges within 45 days, any estimated transfer will become invalid.
The institution from which the student is requesting the transfer must be licensed by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The DOE will evaluate the official transcripts to determine which credits, if any, will be accepted. Any credits accepted will be reflected on the student’s EHA transcript.
- Official transcripts are to be mailed directly to EHA’s Education Department by the originating college.
- Courses are deemed comparable in content and credits/hours by EHA.
- A grade of 2.0 or better was earned for General Education and 3.0 or better for Nursing Core courses.
- Transcripts reflecting an actualized degree (AS, BS, MS, MD, etc.) regardless of age.
- General Education science and Nursing core credits earned within the last ten years.
- Non-science General Education courses regardless of age.
- Credit transfer cannot exceed 60% of the program’s requirement.
