Whom do I see concerning course evaluation for transfer credit?

Please consult the General Studies Division Dean, Dr. Barry Schultz

Will I be able to transfer credit from other institutions to BCHS?

Only courses with a grade of “C” or above will be accepted from other regionally accredited colleges if the work satisfactorily parallels courses offered by Baptist College of Health Sciences. Transfer credit from non-regionally accredited institutions may be considered by the appropriate dean after a review of materials has been submitted.

What is the time limit on transfer credit for courses taken at other institutions?

Earned credit five years old or less in the following courses may be submitted for review: anatomy & physiology I and II, microbiology, chemistry I and II, physics I and II, and pathophysiology. Earned credit three years old or less in computer science courses may be submitted for review. All other courses will be reviewed for transfer credit regardless of age. Transfer credit will be reviewed by the appropriate academic dean(s).

If my Computer Science course was taken more than three years ago, can I test out of the Intro to Computers course?

However, you may take the Computer Competency Exam to demonstrate that you have remained current in your computer skills and by passing this competency exam, credit for your previous course will be transferred. In order to transfer credit for a computer course you have taken more than three years ago, you must do the following:

May I take a course at another college and transfer the credit while attending BCHS?

Once you enroll at Baptist College of Health Sciences, all courses must be taken here, unless special permission is obtained from the Dean of General Studies, Dr. Barry Schultz.
