Transfer Students and Credits

To fulfill the residency requirement for an associate degree, a student must earn a minimum of fifteen credit hours from Ferris. To fulfill the residency requirement for a bachelor's degree a student must earn a minimum of thirty credit hours from Ferris. The University expects that these hours are the final credits earned for the degree.

It is expected that a maximum of one-half of the total hours required for completion of the degree at Ferris may be transferred from non-bachelor degree granting institutions which have articulation agreements with Ferris. In such a case, additional lower-division courses required for a Ferris bachelor's degree may be transferred.

Approved off-campus degree programs may be exempted from portions of this policy. The appropriate dean's office should be consulted for specific requirements.
