Transfer Students

How will my courses be transferred?

It is our policy to transfer as many of your credits to your selected degree program as possible. Here are a few things we look for when evaluating your transcripts:

  • The transcript must be an official transcript sent directly from your institution. For more information on what is considered an official transcript, click here.
  • Courses earned at accredited colleges in which at least a C- grade or its equivalent has been earned are eligible for transfer.


  • Credits earned at a non-accredited college with a grade of C- or above may be accepted for provisional transfer credit. After a student has completed 30 semester hours at Ohio Christian University with a GPA of 2.0 or higher these courses are officially accepted as credit toward the student’s program.
  • OCU recognizes accreditation from ABHE and regional accreditation bodies.
  • Up to 95 semester hours from accredited four-year colleges, up to 64 semester hours from junior or community colleges, and up to 60 semester hours from non-accredited colleges can be transferred.

As a new transfer student*, make sure you have done the following to begin your process of transferring to OCU:


  • Submit your application
  • Request your high school transcripts (if you have taken less than 12 college credit semester hours)
  • Request your college transcript from the Registrar at your institution
  • Submit your ACT or SAT scores


For more information on our transfer policy, please see page 13 of our Academic Catalog

How can I have my transcripts evaluated?

  1. Submit your application
  2. Request submission of your college transcripts to OCU from the Registrar at your institution.

Because we work hard to get you the most credit to transfer into your desired program through your Department Chair, it can sometimes take anywhere from five to ten business days to determine your transfer evaluation.

*Military credits may also be accepted. For more information for Military students, click here.

We look forward to working with you!
