A student transferring from an accredited institution must present an official copy of his/her transcript from each college-level institution attended. Secondary school records and standardized test results (ACT or SAT) may be required if the applicant has fewer than 20 semester hours of transferable credit. A recommendation from an appropriate university official (e.g. Registrar, Academic Dean, the Dean of Students, etc.) at each institution attended as a full-time student may be also be required. The transfer applicant should be in good standing with the institution or eligible to return to it. A resume' or statement of activities may be required to account for extended periods of non-enrollment. Additional requirements may apply for admission to the College of Pharmacy (See College of Pharmacy section for more information.)
The University grants transfer credits only for courses in which the student has received a grade of "C" (2.00/4.00) or better and which are comparable to Xavier courses. Ordinarily the grades of transfer courses are not computed in the Xavier GPA. Not more than one-half of the credits required for the degree may be transferred from a community and/or junior college.
The University will confer a degree only after the applicant has fulfilled the requirement of at least 25% of course credit in residence. Eighteen hours of the 25% must be in the major with a grade of "C" or better in each course and nine hours must be in the minor. At most 50% of transfer credit can be fulfilled from community college credits.
