Transfer Credits

Transfer credit usually refers to units taken in a previous course of study and transferred to the student’s program at AUSB.

As a standard,

  • Graduate courses that will be more than five years old at the time of graduation are not transferable.
  • Doctoral level courses that will be more than eight years old at the time of graduation are not transferable.

In addition, students may take a course at another regionally accredited educational institution while enrolled at AUSB and request that those units be transferred to their program. To do this, the student submits a Concurrent Enrollment Agreement form to the Advisor who determines if the course is appropriate for transfer. The student then registers at the secondary institution, passes the course with a grade of “B” or better for graduate students, “C” or better for undergraduate students, and arranges for the course credits to be transferred to the Office of Student Services.

Courses may be taken concurrently at another regionally accredited educational institution; however, students cannot receive Federal Financial Aid concurrently at both schools. The student submits a Concurrent Enrollment Agreement form to the Advisor, indicating that this course is not offered at AUSB and is central to her/his educational goals. The student officially registers both on the AUSB campus and at the other institution.

Courses may be taken at other Antioch campuses in Los Angeles, California; Seattle, Washington; Keene, New Hampshire; or Yellow Springs, Ohio. The student must submit the completed Intra-university Registration Petition form indicating the desire to take a course at the other campus.

AUSB maintains a written record of previous education and training.  When transfer credit results in the reduction of a program’s residency requirement, the student’s record will be updated accordingly and s/he will be notified of the reduced residency requirement.

AUSB does not assess transfer credit evaluation processing fees.
