Credit for Previous Education, Training, Etc.
Students applying for credit in any of the categories described below must complete a Credit for Previous Education, Training, Work Experience (Experiential Learning), or CLEP form and submit official transcripts, course descriptions, and other supporting documentation prior to admission as required on the form.
Previous Education or Training
Course credit may be transferred from any Kaplan educational institutions upon a student's acceptance to the receiving Kaplan educational institution. The transfer of credit award will be based on
- courses that have a grade of D (applies to graduates of Kaplan Higher Education programs) or C- (applies to students who attended but did not graduate from a Kaplan Higher Education program) or better;
- course descriptions, objectives, or outcomes;
- core/major courses that apply to the program; and
- conversions from quarter to semester credit systems, or vice versa, that follow common practices for academic credit conversions. Course to course transfers based on course objectives or outcomes can be made in lieu of the academic credit conversions.
If the student is enrolled in a course or program that requires a particular grade to pass, the student must receive the required score or grade to receive credit.
Credit cannot be transferred until an official transcript is submitted to the Kaplan Higher Education institution evaluating the transfer credit.
Students transferring from any Kaplan educational institution must complete a minimum of 25 percent of the course credit at the Kaplan Higher Education institution awarding the graduation credential.
