Transfer Work

Los Angeles Pacific University (LAPU) accepts graduate-level academic credits transferred from other colleges or universities according to the following criteria:

  • The college or university must be an institution of higher education accredited by a regional accrediting body. These accrediting bodies mandate assessment and other quality control systems that give LAPU a high level of confidence in their programs.

  • Coursework must be designated on the official transcript as graduate-level.

  • Students must have completed the transferred courses within the past seven years and earned a minimum grade of B-. Courses taken more than seven years previously may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Transfer credit can account for a maximum of one-third of the total program credits for  a graduate degree.

  • The transferred courses must apply to a LAPU graduate degree program as the equivalents of required courses (i.e., providing a similar knowledge base and/or competencies).

  • Enrolled LAPU students who would like to transfer coursework from another university into LAPU must submit a Transfer Inquiry Form to the Office of the Registrar and receive approval before registering for a class at another institution.

  • An official college transcript must be submitted to LAPU by the issuing institution in order for such coursework to be evaluated for transfer of credit.
