Transferability of Credits

Transferability of Credits

Students enrolling at Humboldt International University who intend to continue their education at other institutions after graduating or withdrawing from the University should be aware that other institutions have full discretion as to which credits will be accepted for transfer. Humboldt International University is not accredited in the United States but does have an international accreditation. This might directly affect the transferability of credits to other institutions. It is up to the receiving institution to accept credits earned at our University.

The University neither guarantees nor implies that other Institutions will accept the credits earned at Humboldt International University. Transferability of credits is at the discretion of the accepting institution, and it is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether credits will be accepted by another institution.

TRANSCRIPTS AND DOCUMENTATION EVALUATION (TRANSFER OF CREDITS)

As part of the admissions process, prospective students must send an official transcript to the Registrar for transfer credit evaluation. These transcripts must be sent to HIU directly from the institution where the credit was earned or sent by the candidate if the official transcript is sealed from the originating institution, no later than 30 days from the start of the first course.

Humboldt International University (HIU) has implemented a process to evaluate the possibility of accepting the transfer of credits earned at other institutions of higher learning as well as those who have earned them through life experience skills development. Prior to being accepted, the applicant must present to the Admissions Rep their desire to “Transfer Credits from Another Institution” to HIU. The Admissions rep with the assistance of the Registrar must evaluate the courses for acceptability. This procedure is also performed on applicants that wish to have their life-experiences evaluated.

Credit(s) may be accepted and/or granted toward the student’s academic program at the discretion of the University.

  • A maximum of 75% of an incoming student credits can be accepted for the Bachelor program. HIU will accept a Transfer Credit in the Bachelor program with a grade of “D” if the cumulative GPA is 2.5 or above.
  • A maximum of 50% of an incoming student credits can be accepted for the Master’s program.
  • A maximum of 15% of an incoming student credits can be accepted for the Doctoral program. HIU will not accept a Transfer Credit in the Master’s or Doctoral program with a grade of “D” regardless of how it affects the cumulative GPA. This way, credits earned from previous education at another institution may be transferred to the student’s permanent record at HIU. Once all the “Transferable Credits” have been evaluated then and only then can the student be allowed to take courses at HIU.

If credits are not accepted, students have the right to submit a written appeal to the Dean of Academics within one week of denial. The Dean of Academics will review the transcript and make a final determination within five business days.

HIU 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.
