Credit Transfer Policy
Students who request a transfer of credits from another institution should be aware of the following guidelines which the Senate, as a rule, will use when it considers such requests:
Note: the final decision for all transfer credit requests rests with the Senate. Senate reserves the right to make exceptions to the adopted guidelines in special circumstances.
The student requesting a transfer of credit must:
These documents should be submitted to the registrar, along with the other standard application documents. The normal application submission deadline applies to transfer credit requests as well. Senate reserves the right to request additional documentation, if necessary.
It should be understood that, for practical reasons, it is not possible for CRTS to grant advanced standing to applicants. Since original language courses are not accepted for transfer, each student needs to complete the freshmen language courses at CRTS. Following that, the rest of the curriculum is taught using a three-year curriculum cycle. This means that even if a student receives transfer credits for a certain number of courses, it is not possible to reduce the length of a student’s degree program by an entire year. In sum, taking these scheduling factors into consideration, it is not possible for CRTS to grant advanced standing.
If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar.
