Transferring Units

Transfer Information for Traditional Undergraduate Students

If you are not a Traditional Undergraduate Student (16 week classes), click here for SPS Transfer Information. If you are considering a study abroad program, additional forms are necessary.

Current UG Students must fill out a Request to Transfer Off-Campus Units form before taking any courses off campus. Without this form, Current Students are not assured that classes will transfer based on Transfer Rules for Current Students. A course description must be attached to the form for each course listed or the form will not be processed.

Courses must be taken for a letter grade but will not be counted in your cumulative GPA at Vanguard. Courses taken as Credit/No Credit or Pass/Fail will not transfer.

Vanguard has unique transfer guidelines for institutions that are not regionally accredited (e.g. WASC). The guidelines for Non-Regionally Accredited College Transfers are in addition to normal transfer policies.

All other transfers can follow Vanguard’s Core Curriculum. If you want to figure out how your units will transfer, compare the course descriptions of the classes you have taken with Vanguard’s Core Curriculum Course Descriptions. Also see Transfer Guide: Majors Checklist and Four Year Plans.
