Humboldt International University has a mandatory English Proficiency Test for international students.

The English Proficiency Test was developed by HIU’s Faculty Committee and is used as an aid in determining the language proficiency and English comprehension level of incoming students.

Applicants who have been accepted at the University and who have taken courses at other Institutions and/or who have special qualifications or developed skills may apply for a transfer of credit hour(s) and/or evaluation of skills. Credit(s) may be accepted and/or granted toward the student’s academic program at the discretion of the University. A maximum of 40% of the courses required for the program will be accepted as transferred credits.

Credits earned from previous education at an Institution may be transferred to the permanent record of students registered at Humboldt International University.

Students must request former Academic Institution(s) to forward Official Transcript(s) to HIU Registrar's Office. Former transcripts are evaluated by the Approval Department. To evaluate credits transferability, students should also submit a written request and the supporting documentation to support said request. The transferability request must be submitted to the Registrar's Office at any time during the week before or within the first week of class of the academic term. Students subject to this credit review are expected to take the academic course under evaluation. Approval will be based on the number of credit-hours already completed and equivalency with the course associated with the students’ academic program.

Students will receive a written notice for the credit(s) allowed and the adjusted tuition and program length within five days.

The University neither guarantees nor implies that other Institutions will accept the credits earned at Humboldt International University. Each Institution has its policies, which rule the acceptance of credits from other Institutions.

No credits will be granted for academic courses that have received a grade lower than a “C” (70%).

In the event that credits are not accepted, students have the right to submit a written appeal to the University Director within one week of denial. University Director will review the transcript and make a final determination within five business days.
