Policies Governing Transfer Credit to Virginia Tech:
1. Courses must be taken through either a study abroad program offered by an accredited college or university in the U.S. or an institution recognized by the country’s Ministry of Education.
2. Only courses in which the student earned a grade of “C” or better will transfer. Home study, correspondence and Pass/Fail courses will not transfer. Courses taken as credit-by-exam or as advanced standing at another school do not transfer.
3. Only credits earned transfer; grades do not transfer and do not figure into a student’s Virginia Tech GPA computation.
4. Where credit hours given at the other school exceeds that for the equivalent Virginia Tech course, only the Virginia Tech credit hours will be granted.
5. A course passed at Virginia Tech takes priority over an equivalent transfer course, regardless of when the transfer course is taken or the grade earned. Courses that duplicate previously studied material will not transfer.
6. A minimum of ¼ of the credit for the degree must be earned at Virginia Tech.
7. Of the last 45 semester hours before graduation, a maximum of 18 semester hours may be transfer hours.
