Transfer Credit Approval
All current Marian University students who wish to take one or more courses at another college or university must first obtain approval.
Residency Requirement: In the bachelor degree programs, the last 12 credits in the major and the last 30 credits overall must be earned at Marian University, uninterrupted by any transfer work. In associate degree programs, the last 9 credits in the major and the last 15 credits overall must be earned at Marian University. If the courses you wish to take away from Marian University will fall within your last 30 hours toward your bachelor (or 15 toward associate), you must request a residency waiver from the Dean of Academic Affairs in addition to the normal approval process.
If you plan to take a transfer course at another college or university, follow the link for the applicable option below for more information:
- Option 1: If the course you wish to take at another college or university WILL NOT break the residency requirement as described above, please follow this link for information on how to submit your intent to take a transfer course: Intent to Take a Course in Transfer
- Option 2: If the course WILL break the residency requirement as described above, please follow this link for information on how to have transfer courses approved and request a residency waiver: Transfer Course Approval and Residency Waiver Also follow this link if the course will not break residency but is not listed on TES or is a requirement for your major (not general education or elective).
An alternative that is only available during the fall and spring semesters is the Consortium for Urban Education. Courses taken through CUE are seen as Marian University courses and do not violate the residency requirement. This program carries strict rules and deadlines. Please review the information provided here and visit the Office of the Registrar if you would like to register for a course through CUE.
