Transfer Student Admission Requirements
Transfer students are welcomed to the *IVHU community. *IVHU admissions and registrar work closely with transfer students to identify qualifying course credits towards their *IVHU degrees. Credit may be granted for previous academic work from other approved institutions when equivalency and relevancy to the curriculum at *IVHU can be verified. The absolute maximum for awarding equivalent credits in this manner is limited to 21 credits at the Master’s degree level.
This process will be initiated upon acceptance to *IVHU, by close partnership between the student, the previous institution(s), and the appropriate parties at *IVHU: registrar, admissions, the student’s academic advisor, etc.
