A Francis Marion University student desiring to take courses at some other institution either during the summer session or the regular session and wishing to have courses transferred to Francis Marion University to apply toward a degree must have in advance the approval of his/her adviser or department chair or School dean, as well as the Registrar, before registering for the courses. Only those students who are in good academic standing (those with cumulative GPAs of 2.0 or above) can be approved to take courses at other institutions. No course specifically required in the student's major may be taken at another institution without prior approval of the department chair or School dean. Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar.

It is the student's responsibility to have an official transcript sent to the Office of the Registrar upon completion of the course(s) but no later than one month prior to the date he/she is scheduled to complete degree requirements. Grades earned at other institutions will not be computed in the Francis Marion University GPA except when determining whether the student can graduate with honors and when taken in approved fourth-year cooperative programs. A grade of C or higher must be earned for a course to transfer to Francis Marion. A maximum of 30 semester hours in transient credit may be accepted as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the baccalaureate degree. The sum of the transient credit and the transfer credit from junior colleges and two-year institutions may not exceed 65 hours.
