LE Program Policies and Transfer Credit Evaluation
- Up to six (6) hours of LE-designated credit may concurrently fulfill the requirements of the LE program and a student's major.
- All LE-designated courses may be applied to the requirements of a student's minor.
- Accommodations may be made to meet individual program accreditation
- LE Program requirements are waived for students who transfer with AA and AS
degrees from accredited colleges/universities.
- Transfer credit will be accepted for LE-designated courses:
- 1.) If the transferred courses match LE-designated courses in the Park University catalog or
- 2.) If the transferred courses are designated as "general education" courses in the social sciences, humanities, or natural and applied sciences at the accredited institution from which they are being transferred or
- 3.) In cases where neither #1 or #2 apply, the transferred courses are evaluated as equivalent based on discipline-specific criteria provided to the Registrar's Office by the academic departments or, when necessary, by Department Chairs themselves.
- 4.) If a student is transferring 60 or more hours but does not have an AA or AS degree, the Registrar's Office may accept those courses based on discipline, and only if the courses are at the 100 or 200-level. These 60 or more hours must be from accredited colleges/universities, or credit recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE.)
Park University’s Degree Programs are regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
