Religious Holiday Observance
In support of students’ observance of their religious holidays, DeVry University has developed the Religious Holiday Observance policy. Students who expect to miss classes or other course requirements because of their observance of a religious holiday will be provided reasonable accommodations to complete missed work. In order to be provided alternative accommodations, students must notify their professor of the need to be absent from class and/or miss a course requirement prior to the observance of the religious holiday(s). Students are encouraged to contact faculty as soon as they are aware that their religious holiday will conflict with class requirements. Students who notify their professor of the need for an accommodation will be provided an alternative assignment or extension to submit work after the conclusion of the religious holiday.
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 or community college courses. Transfer credit maximums are also subject to DeVry's residence requirement for the chosen program (see the undergraduate academic catalog for more information about residency requirements). 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.
Students using veterans benefits are required to submit official transcripts of all prior education and training to DeVry University. DeVry maintains a written record of previous undergraduate and graduate education completed by veterans and all persons eligible for veterans benefits. A copy of official transcripts used to evaluate transfer credit is maintained in each student’s permanent record. This record, required for transfer-credit review, clearly indicates when appropriate transfer credit has been given. A veteran enrolled in a DeVry University course for which credit has already been earned at a University-recognized institution cannot include that course in the total hours reported to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of prior credit eligible for transfer.
In addition to transfer credit for prior college coursework, DeVry also evaluates military coursework and training experience, professional certifications and training, and standardized examinations. Students who do not have applicable credit from these prior learning experiences may be eligible for prior learning assessment.
To facilitate ease of transferring credits among institutions, the University maintains articulation agreements with many DeVry-recognized two- and four-year colleges and universities, as well as with entities such as the military. Applicable course equivalencies resulting from these agreements are reflected on students’ transfer credit evaluations. Information on agreements maintained by DeVry is available by contacting ArticulationInfo@devry.edu.
Transfer and/or proficiency credits that satisfy graduation requirements are considered when determining a student’s academic level and progress; however, these credits are not used when computing GPAs. Neither transfer nor proficiency credit is granted for certain courses, designated in the academic catalog, which must be completed at DeVry:
Students who receive transfer or proficiency credit for a course are not automatically granted associated credit for lower-level, prerequisite and/or corequisite courses.
Acceptance of transfer courses and award of transfer credit neither imply nor ensure that all transfer credit will fully apply to students’ chosen programs. Transfer courses must have been completed with grades of C (70 percent) or better.
Other restrictions on transfer and proficiency credit may apply, e.g., the transferability of courses may be limited by programmatic accreditation requirements.
Graduate Policy: Degree requirements may be satisfied by up to 15 semester-credit hours of transfer credit in a particular degree program. Students pursuing a graduate certificate may apply transfer credit for up to 50% of the certificate’s credit hours. Students attending a California location may receive transfer credit for up to 20% of the degree program’s credit hours.
Students seeking multiple degrees must meet all course requirements for each degree as well as a minimum of 18 semester-credit hours beyond those required for the prior degree. Students seeking multiple certificates must satisfy residency requirements (see the Keller graduate academic catalog for more information about residency requirements).
All 600-level courses, including capstone courses, must be taken through DeVry University.
Students enrolled in the MSAC program are subject to a 24-semester-credit-hour residency requirement that includes a maximum of six semester-credit hours that may be transferred. Transfer credit cannot be applied to ACCT525.
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 student
- The course or courses taken are equivalent to a Keller course in content, level and credit hours
- The grade or grades earned were B or better
- The course or courses were completed within the five years preceding initial enrollment at the University
Courses taken on a pass/fail basis may not be transferred. Transfer credit reduces the number of courses students must take, and correspondingly reduces students’ costs. This credit does not affect grade point average calculations. Students pursuing graduate certificates may transfer a maximum of 50% of the graduate certificate’s credit hours to their certificate’s total credit hour requirements. Transfer credit is not granted for CPA exam preparation courses.
Students who receive transfer credit for a course are not automatically granted associated credit for prerequisite courses.
Students must complete a Request for Transfer Credit form and submit it to the admissions advisor (admissions representative in Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska and online), or student support advisor or academic advisor, with all required materials when applying to receive transfer credit. Students should check with their admissions representative/student support advisor/academic advisor for more detailed information.
Articulation agreements facilitate ease of transferring credits among institutions. DeVry University maintains articulation agreements with many colleges and universities, as well as with entities such as the military.
The University awards transfer credit, as appropriate, based on recommendations of the American Council on Education College Credit Recommendation Service, which evaluates workforce and military training programs to determine their comparability to college-level learning. To earn credit, students must earn the minimum ACE-recommended score or higher. Additional information on workforce and military training recommendations is available via the National Guide to College Credit for Workforce Training and the ACE Military Guide Online, respectively.
Students using veterans benefits are required to submit official transcripts of all previous education and training to DeVry University. DeVry University maintains a written record of previous undergraduate and graduate education completed by veterans and all persons eligible for veterans benefits. A copy of official transcripts used to evaluate transfer credit is maintained in students’ permanent records. This record, required for either program admission or transfer-credit review, clearly indicates when appropriate transfer credit has been given. Credit for up to 15 semester-credit hours may be transferred into a DeVry University graduate program. Students attending a California location may receive transfer credit for up to 20% of the degree program’s credit hours. Veterans enrolled in a DeVry University course for which credit has already been earned at a University-recognized institution cannot include that course in the total hours reported to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It is students’ responsibility to be aware of prior credit eligible for transfer.
