Ottawa University accepts dual credit and prior college credit for transferable courses from accredited colleges and universities. Dual credit refers to courses for which students earn both high school and college credit for the same courses. Prior college credit refers to courses taken at a college or university that are not used to satisfy high school graduation requirements.
Students who have participated in dual credit programs and/or those who have earned prior college credit are required to have official transcripts sent from all colleges and universities through which credit has been attempted. Official transcripts for first-time undergraduate students and new transfer students must be sent to the Admissions Office prior to matriculation at Ottawa University. Undergraduate course work is evaluated by the Registrar’s Office for transferability and applicability. Credit and grades for transferable courses will become part of the student’s academic record at Ottawa University.
