  • Evaluation of Transfer Courses

    The William Jewell College registrar, who may consult with department chairs, provides the official evaluation of all courses offered in transfer. Courses from accredited institutions will be considered for credit as they apply to the curriculum of the College, provided that the student has earned course grades of C- or higher. Generally, undergraduate courses that are technical or vocational in nature, based upon participation in intercollegiate athletics or otherwise inconsistent with the liberal arts curriculum of William Jewell College will not be accepted. Additional regulations are listed in the college catalog.
