Transfer of Credits
Credits to be transferred must represent work that is applicable to the student’s course of study. Credits
must represent work which is substantially equivalent in quality and quantity to the work for which it is to
be substituted at SHMS.
Courses must come from an ATS and/or a regionally accredited institution with a grade or C (2.0) or
better to qualify for transfer credit. Transfer credits will be recorded on the student’s transcript with the
grade TR. The student’s GPA will not be affected.
Each degree and diploma program has a specific number of credits that must be earned in residency at
SHMS. Students should consult the applicable degree or diploma program for residency requirements.
It is the responsibility of the student to authorize and request academic records and transcripts to be sent to
SHMS. Official transcripts are required for transfer.
