Credit Transfer Policy
All transfer credits should come from an institution or program accredited by an agency recognized by the US Department of Education (USDE) and/ or US Commission on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or their international equivalent. Credits from unaccredited institutions or programs, or accreditations that are not recognized by the USDE or the CHEA may be accepted if their academic goals and program outcome are determined to be equivalent to those of RPUT. This determination is made by the Academic Review Committee (ARC) of RPUT.
The ARC shall determine each credit transfer case on individual merit. Their determination shall fall under one of three outcomes: Admitted, Provisionally Admitted, and Not Admitted. “Provisionally Admitted” means the applicant may be admitted on condition that certain deficiencies be remediated within set time frame upon which Full Admission may be considered. A provisionally admitted student who fails to clear their deficiency within the agreed terms shall be dropped from the program without any refunds.
Remediation of deficiencies shall be doing and passing a recommended specific course or courses before joining the status of a fully admitted student. A provisionally admitted student is advised to concentrate on the recommended remedial courses and get them cleared before the expiration of the provisional period. Provisional admission shall be valid for one academic year unless otherwise stated in an individual case.
