TRANSFER CREDITS POLICY
UNAD Florida may transfer credits obtained in appropriately accredited higher education institutions. The acceptance of the transfer credits is based on the similarity of the courses with UNAD Florida’s required program courses. The similarity is determined from course description, and the number of credits. This ensures that the accepted courses are equivalent in content and intensity to UNAD Florida courses in the desired academic program.
For applicants to an undergraduate program, a maximum of 50% of the credits can be accepted by the Transfer Credit Evaluation Committee. For Master's programs, up to a maximum of 9 credits are accepted. For the doctoral programs UNAD Florida does not accept credits transferred from another institution.
For students who request a credit transfer, they must follow the following steps:
The acceptance of the transfer of credit from UNAD Florida to another college or university is at the discretion of the transferring school. It is the responsibility of the student to check with prospective receiving school to ensure credits will be transferable.
