Credit for Prior Learning

Transfer of Credit for Online Programs

Oak Hills is transfer-friendly! Submit your unofficial transcripts and we will be glad to evaluate them for you!

General Policies for Online Programs:

Credits earned at other colleges with a grade of "C" or better may be transferred to OHCC and applied toward graduation, provided those credits meet the program requirements. Pass/no pass courses do not transfer, unless the college's transcript indicates that the "Pass" equals a "C" or better. The college needs to be recognized by an accrediting agency or acknowledged by OHCC. Students may be asked to validate equivalent subjects taken at non-accredited schools. After equivalency has been approved, the credits will be pending official approval until the student achieves a minimum GPA of 2.0. This must be done during the student's first year at OHCC or the transfer credits will be lost. Online students will be required to take a minimum of 30 credits (15 in Biblical Studies; 15 in Major) for a Bachelors degree or 21 credits (9 in Biblical Studies) for an Associates degree of Oak Hills courses.

Credit for Prior Learning

There is no maximum limit on credit for prior learning for Adult & Professional Studies (APS) students provided that students meet all the required policies of the college. We will work with you to estimate the number of prior learning credits you might earn in an online degree program prior to beginning the program. Credit for Prior Learning hours can be from a number of different sources, including workshops, seminars, self-study, noncredit classes, training programs and/or work experiences. Students may earn Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) by submitting a portfolio that will be evaluated by a faculty member in the relevant field for the amount of credit to be awarded.
