Pace University Online Transfer Credit
Virtually all Pace University Online students come to us with some previous college experience. That is why we operate under a flexible University transfer credit policy that aims to give you the maximum amount of transfer credit for your desired program.
While each applicant’s prior work is considered on a case-by-case basis, we generally accept:
- Courses completed with a grade of 2.0 (C) or higher at an accredited institution (or at another institution at the discretion of Pace University)
- Credit from standardized examinations you have successfully passed, e.g. CLEP tests
The Pace University Online Admission Committee evaluates transcripts for transfer credit in collaboration with the chairperson of your program. We evaluate credit based on your official transcripts from past institutions. Transfer credit evaluation typically takes 2-3 weeks.
In some cases, e.g. international students, we may also require you to send us specific course descriptions and syllabi. We will note if this is required after we admit you. To expedite the process, you should submit course description documents as soon as possible.
Transfer Credit Limits
Pace University Online will accept a maximum number of credits from your previous institutions:
- No more than 68 credits may be transferred from two-year institutions.
- No more than 90 credits may be transferred from a four-year institution
Not all of the courses you took may be eligible for transfer credit depending on their relevance to the program you pursue at Pace University Online.
Use our Transfer Credit Equivalencies web tool to get an idea of whether your classes will count for transfer. Note that the decision to accept transfer credit is ultimately up to our department chairpersons.
