This section is geared to undergraduate students. Graduate students should consult the appropriate Graduate office for assistance.
Students transferring from accredited two-year colleges may transfer up to 60 semester hours. An additional 60 semester hours must be taken on the senior college level, with the final 30 semester hours for graduation taken at Gardner-Webb.
Students transferring from accredited four-year colleges may transfer up to 90 semester hours. For a bachelor’s degree, the final 30 semester hours for graduation must be taken at Gardner-Webb. Candidates for the associate’s degree must take their final 24 hours at Gardner-Web.
Credit may be transferred only for courses in which the student has earned a C (2.0) or better. The student must meet graduation requirements for the total number of hours required.
Courses accepted as transfer credit are recorded with grades, grade points, and quality points. However, the grade point average for graduation is computed on academic credit earned at Gardner-Webb. The Registrar interprets the transfer policy and certifies students for graduation.
If you are having trouble understanding your evaluation of transfer credits, or if you would like to question the way your courses transferred into Gardner-Webb, please call or email the Office of the Registrar at (704) 406-4260 or [email protected].
Students who plan to take courses at other institutions during a regular term or summer session must have the prior permission of the Registrar. An online Request to Recognize Transient Credit form must be completed for approval. The Registrar will give permission for work only from fully accredited institutions. Credit is only approved for courses of college level which also are credited toward graduation. After completion of such courses, the student must request an official transcript be sent to the Registrar at Gardner-Webb University.
Students must have earned less than 90 in a BS or BA degree program or less than 42 hours in the AA Degree Graphic Design program or less than 48 hours in the AS Degree in Nursing program. If the earned hours fall within the state limits, use the online Request to Recognize Transient Credit form. To access the form:
If a student has exceeded the transient credit limit (48 hours for the AS Degree in Nursing Program, 42 hours in the AA Degree in Graphic Design program, or 90 hours in a BS or BA degree program), fully completed “Request to Waive Transient Credit Limit” form must be submitted for approval by the appropriate Associate Provost.
An email will be sent to notify the student of the status of each request. Upon the completion of the course, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain an official college transcript. This official transcript must be sent:

Gardner-Webb University students may apply for transient credit if the following conditions are met. A student may obtain permission for concurrent enrollment if the student wants a guarantee for the credit to meet a certain requirement or to be equivalent to a specific Gardner-Webb course. Otherwise, the form is not necessary.
