Transfer of Credit
Transfer Credit Evaluation
The Warner University curriculum policies usually allow for a complete transfer of credit. If you have questions, contact the Admissions Office or the Registrar’s Office. Transfer credits can only be posted from an official transcript. Evaluation of transfer credit for all transfer applicants follows these criteria:
- Two-year college credit must parallel the coursework offered by Warner University. The associate degree is evaluated on a course-by-course basis unless it is part of an Articulation Agreement, in which case the agreement will detail how the associate degree will transfer.
- Terminal associate degree programs are generally accepted only on a course-by-course basis. The key courses are those that are appropriate to a liberal arts curriculum.
- Up to 30 semester credit hours of Experiential Learning (earned prior to matriculation as posted on the official transcript) will be accepted at the time of entry.
- Credit transferred from an institution that is not regionally accredited is evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Each course is listed on an Academic Credit Evaluation Worksheet and reviewed in terms of its content, objectives, and the qualification of the instructor.
- “D” and “F” grades will transfer to Warner University as a part of the student’s academic history. Only three “D” grades may apply to the completion of the bachelor’s degree, and a grade of “C” or higher is required in English composition, mathematics, and all courses in the student’s major and minor.
- Students may be asked to repeat courses when, because of the dates of the courses, significant changes have occurred in the content field.
Warner University has Articulation Agreements with the public two-year colleges in Florida. To see an Agreement for a specific major, click here.
Prior Learning Assessment
Warner University accepts the principle that learning as a result of experience may be recognized for credit in place of regular courses that require attendance and exams. The Registrar’s Office manages a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program. To receive credits, students who believe that some of their job or life experiences have given them university-level academic learning must successfully complete WU 2080 to learn about the PLA process and develop the necessary PLA skills.
Military, Professional, and Technical Training
Warner University awards credit for military training and other non-university-sponsored learning activities (for example, professional and technical training) according to the recommendations of the American Council of Education and PONSI as allowed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

AP – Advanced Placement
The Advanced Placement Program of the College Board provides exams in more than 30 different fields. Examinations are administered by high schools and graded on a scale from one to five, with five being the highest score. The Warner University faculty has approved awarding credit for a grade of three, four, or five on any Advanced Placement Examinations. To see how a specific exam would transfer click here.
CLEP – The College Level Examination Program
The College Level Examination Program is a national standardized testing program administered by the College Board and is for students who believe they have academic strength in any of the General Exam and Subject Exam areas. Students receive credit for each subject area by scoring the minimum score or higher as approved by the faculty. The exams must be taken before the student has completed university credit in the subject. Credits for CLEP will only be awarded from an official score report or if they are a part of an earned degree. Click here to see how a specific exam would transfer.
DSST – Dantes Subject Standardized Tests
The nationally recognized DANTES Subject Standardized Tests are an extensive series of examinations in college subject areas that are comparable to the final or end-of-course exams in undergraduate courses. Whereas CLEP tests are almost exclusively used for lower-level credit, DSSTs are available for both upper- and lower-level credit. Students earn credit for each subject area by scoring the minimum score or higher as approved by the faculty. The exams must be taken before the student has completed university credit in the subject. Credits for DSST will only be awarded from an official score report or if they are a part of an earned degree. Click here to see how a specific exam would transfer.
IB – International Baccalaureate
Warner University recognizes course credit through the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. Students earning the full IB Diploma will be awarded 32 credit hours. The credits will meet many of the general education requirements, including English composition (6 credit hours), science (8 credit hours), foreign language (6 credit hours), math (6 credit hours), history (3 credit hours), and psychology/sociology (3 credit hours). Students not receiving the full IB Diploma may earn credit by examination for scores of four or higher on the Higher Level and Subsidiary examinations. Learn more here.
