Transfer articulation:

Acceptance of transfer credit does not imply applicability to any specific degree program.

All courses taken must be completed with a grade of "C" or better in accredited programs, and correspond in time and content to courses offered by SPSU. A grade of "D" is acceptable for Core Curriculum courses taken from a University System of Georgia institution, with the exception of ENGL 1101, ENGL 1102, MATH 1111, and MATH 1113.

Transfer hours awarded are dependent on the number of credit hours earned when the course was completed.

The number of free elective hours awarded may exceed the number required for any specific degree.
