Credit Evaluations

Your credit evaluation will be completed by our Registrar’s Office after you are accepted to the University. The credit evaluation will be mailed or emailed to you once it is completed. These credits will be put on your official transcript at Sacred Heart once all official final college transcripts have been received and you have registered for classes.

A maximum of sixty-six (66) credits may be applied to a baccalaureate degree from a two-year college and a maximum of ninety (90) credits may be applied from a four-year college or university. The overall number of courses needed for a degree may exceed 120 credits.

If you’ve already earned 60 credits or more at another institution, we will waive our common core. CIT 202 Seminar will not be waived.

If there is a discrepancy with how a course transfers in, a syllabus must be submitted in order to re-review the course.
