Program-to-program transfer articulation guidelines

Institutional transfer articulation agreements focus on the detailed conditions for accepting students (with specific degrees and GPAs) and transferring their completed associate degrees into specific Davenport University majors. If Davenport University has an articulation agreement with the institution you attended previously, that agreement governs your transfer determination if covered by the articulation agreement. Otherwise, your transfer determination is governed by individual course-to-course equivalency evaluations and Davenport University transfer policies, or as determined by DU at its sole discretion.

Those applying as transfer students who wish to have credits from another college evaluated and applied to their Davenport degree must have an official transcript sent to the Registrar’s Office. Transfer applicants with a bachelor’s degree from another institution may earn a second bachelor’s degree from Davenport University, provided the curriculum at Davenport University is substantially different from the curriculum involved in the first degree.

Regardless of the number of credits accepted from other institutions, all transfer students must meet Davenport’s minimum residency requirements.
