Transfer of Credits Guidelines
Transfer Credit Evaluation
The Admissions Officer and Registrar are responsible for administration of the transfer of credits from other institutions.
Graduate Transfer of Credit
Graduate credits from other institutions will not automatically transfer into HSU. As a part of the application process or at the time of program change, a request for transfer of graduate credit may be submitted for review. The applicant/student must make a special request for transfer of graduate credit into an HSU program by completing a "Request for Transfer of Credit Form" along with the syllabus, course description and other materials to support the request. The Admissions office and/or Registrar's office will check transcripts records to make sure that the credits are valid. The request is reviewed by the admissions committee and the department chairs. The Department Chair makes a final determination for credit transfer. No more than 6 credit hours can be transfeered into a master's degree program. Students must have received a grade of B or higher in each course that is to be transferred into HSU.
Challenge of Transfer of Credit Determination
The credit audits and determination of credits transferred is approved by the department chair and is processed through the admissions office/registrar's office in accordance with HSU published guidelines. If a decision is challenged, the final determination of credit transfer will be made by the Provost.
Quarter to Semester Hour Equivalency
One quarter hour is generally equivalent to 2/3 of a semester hour. Quarter hour units will be converted to semester units by dividing the total number of quarter units by 1.5.
