Students may receive specific course credit (for example, ACCT 204: Financial Accounting – 3 credits) or general electives for prior coursework performed at a tertiary educational level, such as Advanced Levels/CAPE, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate, or other coursework performed at a previously-attended post-secondary institution.

A notation of the advanced standing/transfer credit, the course or category, denoted by “T,” and the credit hours received, will appear on the SGU transcript. The credit hours may be utilized to fulfill graduation requirements; however, no grade is earned. Thus, such credit does not impact the SGU Grade Point Average (GPA). Students should direct questions relating to transfer credits to the Office of the  University Registrar.
