Transient Work at Another University Download to print
Kent State University students who wish to take coursework at another accredited institution of higher education must receive the prior approval of the academic dean of the appropriate unit if the student intends to apply this coursework toward a Kent State University degree or certificate. Transient work by students who are on probation, dismissed or in the last 30 hours of a degree program may be restricted by the students’ college. All credits granted for transient work will be translated into semester hours. Grades received for transient work are not transferred; only credit hours are transferred. Generally, credit for non-remedial/developmental courses in which students have earned a minimum C grade at an accredited school (as determined by the Transfer Center) will be considered for transfer. However, transfer credit earned fall 2005 and later from a regionally accredited college or university in Ohio and earned fall 2010 and later from a regionally accredited, or international equivalent, college or university outside Ohio will be awarded for all non-remedial/developmental courses in which students have earned a minimum D grade.
No more than 18 semester hours of transient work may be approved. Approvals for transient attendance are valid for one term only (quarter, semester, etc.) at other institutions and are subject to all restrictions of the dean of the student’s college.
