A. Equivalency Standard.
(1) A receiving institution shall accept a course or combination of courses completed at a sending institution for transfer when the receiving institution determines that at least 70 percent of the course learning objectives of the course or combination of courses completed at the sending institution are equivalent to the course learning objectives of a course or combination of courses at a receiving institution.
(2) An institution may not use any other standard or method of determining the equivalency of an individual course or combination of courses at a sending institution to a course or combination of courses at a receiving institution, other than the standard set forth in §A(1) of this regulation.
(3) An institution may not consider the course numbers or levels assigned to the sending or receiving institution’s course or combination of courses when making a determination under §A(1) of this regulation.
B. Equivalencies shall be determined by faculty who are subject matter experts and may not be determined by non-academic staff.
C. An equivalent course shall only be transferred if the grade achieved at the sending institution for the completed course is the same or higher than the grade required for a non-transfer student in the equivalent course at the receiving institution.
D. The number of credits awarded to the student by the receiving institution for a course or combination of courses deemed equivalent under this regulation may not be less than the number of credits earned for that course or combination of courses at the sending institution.
E. An institution shall include in the policies and procedures established under Regulation .03 of this chapter the process the institution will use for the evaluation of course learning objective equivalencies.
