Transferring To Rhodes State
Students transferring from another college must have official transcripts from each college attended sent to the Rhodes State College Office of Transfer for evaluation. Faxed transcripts or transcripts sent to an individual's email will not be considered official.
According to The Ohio Articulation and Transfer Policy, transfer students shall be subject to the catalog in force at the time of their admission to the receiving institution and to any revisions that occur after its publication and prior to their enrollment. Once admitted, transfer students shall be subject to the same regulations governing applicability of catalog requirements as native students. Furthermore, transfer students shall be accorded the same class standing and other privileges (e.g., financial aid, housing, registration, parking privileges, etc.) as native students based on the number of credits earned. Exceptions to this regulation may be found in the Ohio Transfer & Articulation Policy, Section III. C located on the Ohio Department of Higher Education's web site, https://www.ohiohighered.org/transfer/policy.
Transfer credit is determined by analysis of course subject content and credit hours. For any coursework completed prior to fall 2005, no course will be transferable if the letter grade is less than "C" or if the course does not apply to the curriculum of Rhodes State College. For coursework completed fall 2005 and after, no course will be transferable if the letter grade is less than "D" or if the course does not apply to the curriculum of Rhodes State College. Coursework in which the grade of "C" or higher was earned will be awarded the transfer grade of "K." Coursework in which the grade of "C-," "D+," or "D" was earned will be awarded the transfer grade of "KX." Coursework receiving the transfer grade of "KX" will not fulfill any graduation requirement or prerequisite in which the "C Grade Policy" applies. Coursework in which the grade of "D-" was earned will not transfer. Credit hours only will be accepted in transfer (no grades). Quarter hours will be accepted based on 1 quarter hour equals .66 semester hours of credit.
