Transfer of Credit Procedure

Transfer of ACHS Credit to Other Institutions

Transfer of credit is always at the discretion of the receiving school, generally depends on comparability of curricula, and may depend on comparability of accreditation. Acceptance of degrees or credits from accredited institutions is determined by the policy of the receiving organization. Accreditation is not a guarantee that credit will transfer to any college or university. ACHS does not guarantee any transfer of credit.

Transfer of Credit to ACHS

Prior credit is evaluated and when equivalent, applied to ACHS required course(s) with the training period shortened proportionately. The ACHS Registrar’s Office reviews transfer of credit for all applicants accepted for admission to ACHS and evaluates all official transcripts received from the issuing institution.

Courses taken at other institutions are evaluated for transfer credit on a course-by-course basis. This evaluation is provided to the applicant prior to admission. Only official transcripts are accepted for transfer credit.

ACHS may accept credits earned from post-secondary institutions that are accredited by U.S. Department of Education approved accrediting agency. A minimum of a “C” or better is required for transfer to undergraduate programs; a minimum of “B” or better is required for graduate programs. Transferred courses must be comparable to the content of ACHS courses and have been completed at the corresponding level of study.

Transcripts not in English must be evaluated by an appropriate third party and translated into English or evaluated by a trained transcript evaluator fluent in the language on the transcript. In this case, the evaluator must have expertise in the educational practices of the country of origin and include an English translation of the review. For transfer of credit, the applicant should obtain a course-by-course report.
