Courses taken at other nationally or regionally accredited* colleges and universities will be accepted in transfer provided that these courses are comparable to courses offered at Penn College and are applicable to a degree program at Penn College. No credit is given for internships/co-op courses, or for academic courses with pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory grades.
College credit earned before high school graduation will be evaluated only if the college where the course was taken issues an official college transcript. Students who have earned college credit before graduation from high school are subject to the same transfer protocol as are those transferring credit from other colleges.
* Credits from post-secondary institutions that are not nationally/regionally accredited may be recognized on an individual basis as determined by the academic school.

Students considering transferring to Penn College should begin the application and enrollment process early. Transfer credit evaluations typically take 10-14 business days to complete, but during peak periods may take as long as four weeks.
Among the transfer credit and graduation requirements referenced above are the following key points:
- You must earn a C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better for the course to transfer. The course transfers as credits without a grade and will not impact your Penn College GPA.
- Your transfer credits cannot impede your ability to meet the minimum credit requirements of your degree, as established in the College's Graduation Requirements Policy.
- No credit is given for internships/co-op courses, or for academic courses with pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory grades.
