Transferability of Courses effective July 1, 2021
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 course work from institutions recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). CHEA is a non-governmental coordinating agency for accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). You can learn more about CHEA and the recognized accrediting agencies on their website www.chea.org. Technical or vocational courses are not ordinarily considered for transfer. No credit is given for any course with less than a “C” level grade or those grades on a “Pass/No Pass” or “Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory” grading scale or any course considered remedial. Students may petition to receive credit for courses completed at institutions not recognized by CHEA. Transfer credit is based according to the transfer guidelines established by ORU. Click on the link below. Courses that do not have an ORU equivalent but are academic in nature are counted as general elective credit. These courses may be considered for an ORU course, by submitting a Petition to Transfer at petitions.oru.edu.
Transfer credit from institutions that are not recognized by CHEA may be evaluated individually. A Petition to Transfer at petitons.oru.edu would have to be completed.
