Transfer credits are awarded only for courses completed at accredited institutions. Students may not transfer credits from other institutions after enrolling in the College.

Humanities and Social and Behavioral Science transfer credits are determined on an individual basis. Transfer credits in Natural and Biological Sciences normally must have been earned within five years of acceptance to the College.

Courses considered for transfer credit must be equivalent to those offered at the College in terms of nature, content, level, and number of credits earned. A minimum course grade of C (2.0) is required for transfer credit. Transfer credits are made at the discretion of the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

All students must complete a minimum of 40 credits at Labouré College, regardless of the number of transfer credits awarded.
