Credit Evaluation Practices

For Transcripts from Regionally Accredited Institutions

Required Documentation

Final, official college transcript. All coursework must be completed and graded.

Evaluation Practice

EFSC will transfer college credits earned at institutions accredited by one of the six regionally accrediting associations as follows:

  • Transfer credits are given the grade of TA, TB and, TC and are not calculated into the EFSC cumulative GPA.
  • Only courses with grades of A, B or C will transfer. Grades of S, P, withdrawals, incomplete and audit grades will not transfer.
  • EFSC will transfer in up to 75% of the credits applicable to the student’s chosen major. Only freshman and sophomore (1000-2000) level courses will transfer automatically.
    • For A.A. majors, all applicable general education courses and up to 24 elective credits will transfer.
    • College preparatory courses, vocational courses, withdrawals and audit courses will not transfer.
  • In some cases the college may award credit for an upper level course to facilitate student degree completion, but generally, upper division (3000-4000 level) courses will not transfer. You can appeal this using the appeal process below. Only courses suitable for specific program requirements may be appealed.
  • To ensure accuracy of records for students that have attended multiple institutions, transfer credits will only be awarded if student provides transcript directly from each institution.
  • Colleges on quarter hours will be reviewed as an EFSC equivalent if the transfer credit hours are four quarter hours or higher.  All other classes will be transferred as electives.  The following quarter hour to semester hour conversion will apply:
    • 2 quarter hours = 1.33 semester hours
    • 3 quarter hours = 2.00 semester hours
    • 4 quarter hours = 2.67 semester hours
    • 5 quarter hours = 3.33 semester hours
To appeal a course evaluation, submit the following via Titan student email using this process:

Courses not directly equated to an EFSC course may be appealed on a case-by-case basis.

Reasons to request a re-evaluation:

  • Transfer credit not initially awarded
  • Request for coursework with a grade of "D" to be added to record. (Note: Ds are transferred with grade points and impact overall GPA.)
  • Request for a re-evaluation of transfered courses that were initially evaluated before current guidelines were in place. This option is ONLY available if the student has never taken any classes at EFSC.

BE ADVISED: Once credits have been awarded, they cannot be removed and may impact student financial aid and VA benefits

Documentation required:

    • Instructor’s credentials (bachelor, master, doctorate degree) may be found in the school catalog
  • Briefly explain why you are submitting the appeal request
  • Any additional information that may help the Eastern Florida evaluator determine if the course is equivalent to a course offered at Eastern Florida
