Transfer Work Under Articulation Agreements

Oglethorpe offers the opportunity to transfer work through collaborative efforts with other institutions by way of Articulation Agreements. Formal agreements have been made with the schools below.


Private High Schools:

We accept an unlimited number of credit hours in transfer. A minimum of 64 semester hours must be completed at Oglethorpe as well as at least half of the semester hours required for a major to earn an Oglethorpe degree, with 52 of the last 64 hours earned in residence. Credit earned at Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE) institutions on a cross-registration basis and credit earned in an approved study abroad program are considered Oglethorpe credit. Credit may be transferred in from the following:

  • A maximum of 32 semester hours of credit earned through a combination of the following programs:
    • The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests
    • The Advanced Placement (AP) tests
    • The International Baccalaureate Program (IB)
  • Students who hold the R.N. credential from an appropriately accredited institution are awarded credit for their arts and sciences courses. To earn a bachelor’s degree, the student must complete the Core Curriculum, a major and other applicable requirements.
  • Credits earned at post-secondary institutions accredited by the six regional accrediting bodies (e.g., Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges, Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Higher Education, etc.)
  • Courses recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE ) may be accepted by the registrar. Programs not recognized by ACE are not accepted
