Credit Transfer Policies

Transfer of Credits for the B.A.C.S. Degree

Austin Grad accepts transfer hours from regionally accredited institutions. In addition, up to 15 semester-hours of credit from other institutions may be accepted in transfer toward the BA degree in cases where Austin Grad assesses this as equivalent to college-level work. Transfer credit applied to major coursework must be upper-division (Junior, Senior) level. No transfer credit under the grade of C will be accepted.

Austin Grad will accept up to 30 hours of advanced placement through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or the College Board Advanced Placement (AP). Minimum credit-granting scores are: CLEP – 50. Students desiring credit for AP courses will need to contact the Registrar’s office for details concerning acceptable AP scores. All students who request credit through CLEP or AP must have official test scores sent directly to the Registrar’s office.

Transfer of Credits for the M.A.C.M. Degree

Austin Grad accepts transfer hours from regionally accredited institutions. No transfer credit under the grade of B will be accepted.

Financial Responsibility

Austin Grad maintains a Policy of Financial Responsibility. This policy requires all students, including those receiving financial assistance, must make financial arrangements to settle their financial obligations for tuition, books, and loans as those expenses are due. Students may not be allowed to enroll from semester to semester when tuition and other costs from prior semesters are unpaid. Students will not be allowed to graduate until all financial obligations to Austin Grad are discharged. Transcripts will not be issued to students who have outstanding financial obligations to Austin Grad.

Immunization Policy

The State of Texas has mandated that all new, transfer, readmitted, and special students and students enrolling following a break of at least one long semester are required to provide documentation of immunization to the Admissions Office for meningococcal meningitis.

Exemptions
  • Students who are 22 years of age or older by the first day of the start of the semester
  • Students enrolled only in online or other distance education courses
  • Students not admitted – Auditors, Special Students (non-degree seeking)

 

The initial meningococcal vaccine or booster must have been administered during the five-year period preceding and at least ten (10) days prior to the first day of the first semester in which the student initially enrolls at an institution.

Appropriate documentation includes: the signature or stamp of a physician, his/her designee, or public health personnel on a form which shows the month, day, and year the vaccination dose or booster was administered; an official immunization record generated from a state or local health authority; or an official record received from school officials, including a record from another state. Students requesting an exemption for reasons of conscience must submit the Vaccine Waiver Exemption form available by request at Texas Department of State Health Services. An exemption for medical purposes must be obtained from a licensed physician or nurse practitioner, printed on letterhead paper, and signed by the appropriate licensed medical professional.

The Admissions Office will provide new students with written notice, along with registration materials regarding (1) the right of the student or of a parent or guardian of a student to claim an exemption from the vaccination requirement, and (2) the importance of consulting a physician about the need for the immunization against bacterial meningitis to prevent the disease. This Office will also monitor all applications to ensure compliance with the law and with Austin Grad policy. The Registrar’s Office will monitor this requirement for readmitted and special students to ensure compliance.

Students who have not provided approved documentation showing that they are in compliance with this Austin Grad immunization policy will not be allowed to attend classes. However, under justifiable circumstances, the Director of Admissions may grant extensions to individual students to extend the date to no more than 10 days after the first day of the semester in which the student initially enrolls.
