Transfer Credit Policies and Disclosures
Contemporary Technology University (Contech) has not entered into an articulation or transfer agreement with any other college or university. To transfer credits to programs of study, students must submit official transcripts from the previous institution to the Contech Registrar’s Office for evaluation. Official transcripts are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
The institution may award a maximum of 20 percent of the credits required for a master’s degree program through transfer credit. Courses accepted for transfer credit are relevant to the program of study and equivalent in both content and degree level.
Contech considers student requests to transfer previously earned transcripted course credits into a master’s degree program using these guidelines:
●Transfer requests will be evaluated based on the similarity of course descriptions, not titles. Course descriptions will need to be similar to Contech course descriptions. Contech may require additional materials about the course students are asking to be transferred, such as a course syllabus and catalog, in such cases where these materials cannot be accessed from the website of the institution from which students have taken the courses that they are requesting to transfer.
●All transfer credit requests will be seriously considered. Generally, courses from an accredited institution that is accredited by one of the formal accrediting agencies will be considered for transfer credit. For the master level, only courses with a grade of “C” or better will be considered for transfer credit.
●A student may only transfer credits into a Contech program that has been transcripted at the same level. The university does not allow a student to transfer credit into a program that has previously been transcripted on a different level degree program.
●Courses completed for a degree program from which you have graduated may not be transferred.
●Students considering enrolling in a course from another institution with the intent of transferring the credits from that course into their Contech academic program should ask for a course review first before enrolling in the course.
