Transfer Credit Policy
Undergraduate Policy: DeVry welcomes students with previous college experience and grants students the opportunity to receive credit toward graduation through an evaluation of college-level credit earned at other DeVry-recognized postsecondary institutions.
Applicants seeking to transfer credit from another institution must request an evaluation prior to beginning the first class at DeVry. An official transcript from the institution where the credit was earned is required. DeVry may also require a catalog or additional course material or, if credits were earned at a foreign institution, a credit evaluation by an approved external evaluation service. A maximum of 80 DeVry credit hours may be awarded for lower-division of community college courses. In Oregon, a maximum of 50 percent of baccalaureate program credit hours may be transferred from institutions not offering baccalaureate degrees. Transfer credit maximums are also subject to DeVry's residence requirement for the chosen program (see Graduation Requirements in the academic catalog). Students attending DeVry who seek to earn credit at another institution for transfer to DeVry must have approval to do so in advance from a DeVry academic administrator.
For all veterans and eligible persons, an evaluation of previous education and training is conducted. Appropriate credit is granted, the training period is proportionally shortened, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and students are notified accordingly.
Graduate Policy: Degree requirements may be satisfied by using a combination of transfer credit, course waivers and course exemptions; however, this combination may satisfy requirements for no more than six courses in a particular degree program. Students seeking multiple degrees must satisfy the semester-credit-hour residency requirements.
Requirements for earning a concentration or graduate certificate may be satisfied through a maximum of three semester-credit hours of transfer credit, course waivers or course exemptions. A course may be applied to one concentration only. All 600-level courses, including capstone courses, must be taken through DeVry University. Certain course exemptions are not available in New Jersey and New York.
For students in degree programs, credit for up to three courses (nine semester-credit hours) may be transferred from other University-recognized graduate schools. Students in California may receive transfer credit for up to two courses (six semester credit hours). To receive transfer credit, the following criteria must be met:
• The course or courses taken were for graduate credit while the student was enrolled as a graduate studen
• The course or courses taken are equivalent to a Keller course in content, level and credit hours
• The grade(s) earned were B or better
• The course(s) were completed within the five years preceding initial enrollment
Courses taken on a pass/fail basis may not be transferred. Transfer credit reduces the number of courses students must take in residence, and correspondingly reduces students' costs. This credit does not affect grade point average calculations. Students pursuing graduate certificates may apply a maximum of three semester-credit hours of transfer credit to their certificate requirements. Transfer credit is not granted for CPA exam preparation courses; however, students who hold CPA and/or CFA certification are exempt from certain exam-preparation courses.
Students must complete a "Request for Transfer Credit" form and submit it to the chief location administrator/academic advisor with all required materials when applying to receive transfer credit. Students and graduates should note that when transferring credits to another educational institution, that school has full discretion as to which credits are transferable. For students already holding advanced degrees, credit for up to six courses (two courses for students in California) may be transferred from other University-recognized graduate schools. Students should check with their chief location administrator/academic advisor for more detailed information.
The Federal Election Commission provides guidance regarding voter registration in each state at www.eac.gov/voter_resources/register_to_vote.aspx
The federal Higher Education Opportunity Act requires institution to make available to current and prospective students information about student body diversity, including the percentage of enrolled, full-time students in the following categories
• Self-identified members of a major racial or ethnic group
• Federal Pell Grant recipients
Institution Graduation Rates
The federal Student-Right-To-Know and Higher Education Opportunity Acts require institutions to make completion rates available upon request to prospective students and other interested parties. The Acts define the cohort of students on which the institution must report. This cohort is comprised of "first time, full-time, degree-seeking" students in the institution's fall term that completed their program of study within 150% of their program length.

Complaint Process Disclosure
Federal Program Integrity rules issued by the U.S. Department of Education require institutions to provide to students or prospective students contact information needed to file a complaint with its accrediting agency and with relevant state agencies. This list includes contact information for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. It should not be construed as informative of what agencies regulate DeVry University or in what states the institution is licensed or required to be licensed. That information, along with contact information for our accreditor(s), can be found in the academic catalog.
DeVry University's financial aid calculator will provide an estimate of federal, institutional aid eligibility, and as well as additional financing options.
