Transferability of Courses
Transfer students face unique challenges when selecting a new school at which to complete their education. A primary consideration is the transferability of the courses already taken. We want to expedite your transfer to ORU.
ORU accepts liberal arts courses from regionally accredited institutions as well as courses from schools accredited by the International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA), the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Articulation agreements between ORU and ICAA institutions regarding the transfer of credit are administered according to the ICAA Articulation Program. No credit is given for any course with less than a "C" level grade.
Technical or vocational courses are not ordinarily credited toward the liberal arts degree. Transfer credits from institutions that are not regionally accredited may be evaluated individually according to ORU credit transfer policies. A Petition to Transfer at petitions.oru.edu would have to be completed.
Certification, diploma, associate degree and other pre-bachelor degree programs issued by institutions not accredited by regional accrediting agencies are not accepted for block credit. Courses in these programs may be evaluated individually according to ORU credit transfer policies. A Petition to Transfer at petitions.oru.edu would have to be completed.
