Transfer Policy Update
As of Spring 2017, if you transfer to Fresno Pacific University from the California Community College system with an AA-T or AS-T, your lower division GE requirements will be fulfilled! If you have not yet completed either of those degrees, you can still submit your completed CSU-GE or IGETC-GE certification documents for review toward fulfilling GE requirements at FPU.
Note: Transfer coursework must still have a grade of C- or better for units to transfer. Completion of an AA-T, AS-T, CSU-GE Certification or IGETC-GE certification does not guarantee all coursework units will transfer to FPU. For further details, please speak to FPU's transfer admission counselor.
To see a list of Fresno Pacific University degrees that have been formally approved as "similar" to the corresponding Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT) visit our ADT Pathways Page. Look for the programs marked "Daytime traditional" if you're interested in studying on the main campus.
The following guidelines are used when considering transfer credit
- Courses are completed at a regionally or ABHE, ATS or TRACS accredited institution.
- Courses are baccalaureate-level courses.
- Student received a grade of C- or better.
- Courses/tests are not duplicate to credit already received.
- All GE and major courses must be taken for a letter grade, not a pass/fail.
- All course credit is evaluated according to transfer standards in effect at the time the official transcript is received at FPU.
* Transfer agreements are only a tool. Transfer work is not considered official until it has been evaluated by the FPU Registrar's Office.
