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.

If you plan to take a transfer course, please answer these two questions:

  • Will these courses be part of the LAST 30 credit hours required for your bachelor's degree or LAST 15 credit hours required for your associate degree before you graduate from Marian University? 
  • Are any of the intended transfer courses a requirement for your major (not general education or elective)?
If the answer to BOTH of the above questions is NO, please see intent to take a course in transfer.

If the answer to EITHER of the above questions is YES, please see transfer course approval and residency waiver.

Residency requirement

  • If you are a bachelor's degree student, the last 12 credits earned in your major and the last 30 credits earned overall must be completed at Marian University, uninterrupted by any transfer work.
  • If you are an associate degree student, the last nine (9) credits in your major and the last 15 credits earned overall must be earned at Marian University.
  • If the courses you wish to take away from Marian University will fall within the last 30 hours required for your bachelor's degree (or 15 hours required for your associate degree), you must request a residency waiver from the dean of academic affairs in addition to following the normal approval process.
