Residency Requirements

The residency requirement of the university is 30 credit hours taken at West Haven or at one of the university's off-campus centers. This requirement applies to all degrees, undergraduate and graduate. Transfer credit, coordinated courses, credit by examination, CLEP, DANTES or proficiency examinations do not fulfill residency requirements. To ensure depth of study, the residency requirement must include 12 credit hours of work in the declared major for an associate's degree, and 18 credit hours for a bachelor's degree. Exceptions may be granted only by the dean administrating the major.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

- Complete an admission application and return it to the Undergraduate Admissions Office with the non-refundable application fee.
- Arrange to have official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended forwarded to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
- An official copy of your secondary school transcript, including date of graduation, must also be submitted. A satisfactory General Equivalency Diploma (GED) is acceptable in place of a high school diploma.
- Students who have completed less than one full year (30 semester hours) of college level work must submit official test scores of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT). Students who have completed more than one full year of college level work are not usually required to submit standardized test scores. However, the Admissions Office reserves the right to request this information if necessary.
- In most cases, transfer students will receive a tentative transfer credit evaluation at the time of acceptance.
