Transfer credit is granted only for academically-valid post-secondary-level courses in which the student earns a grade of C- or higher. Passing or Satisfactory grades are accepted only if it can be confirmed via the official transcript key or institution's website that the minimum required grade to earn a P (Pass) or Satisfactory (S) is the grade of a C- or higher.

Credit is normally only awarded for courses taken at a similarly accredited institution. Students who take courses at schools without a similar accreditation must provide syllabi for all courses for individual evaluation by the Registrar's Office and academic department.

Juniata College does not award credit for College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams.

Transfer credit is granted either as a direct equivalent to a Juniata College course or as generic credit.

To transfer in credits for courses taken at another college or university
after you have enrolled at Juniata as a full-time student:

Start by checking our transfer course databases below. These will show courses already approved by the academic departments and catalogued by the Registrar's Office. 

If the course you are interested in taking does not appear on these lists, it just means that no student has transferred those credits to Juniata previously. In that case, you need to complete a Request for Clearance of Transfer Credit form.  It is the student's responsibility to obtain information about the course (course description and/or syllabus) and present this information to the Registrar's Office along with the completed form. This form needs to be completed and approved in advance of taking the course(s) at the other institution.

After completing the course(s) at the other institution, the student is then responsible for requesting to have an official copy of their transcript sent by that institution to the Registrar's Office. In order for approved transfer credit to be awarded, the official transcript must clearly indicate all of the following information for each course: course codes or numbers; course titles; final grades earned; credits earned.

The transcript can be sent to Juniata in one of three ways:

  1. Through a secure third-party transcript exchange service
  2. By email to
  3. By mail to Juniata College Registrar's Office, 1700 Moore Street, Huntingdon, PA, 16652

Once the transcript is received, the transfer credit will be evaluated and the student will be notified it has been processed.

International Credits:

For credits taken at international institutions to be eligible for transfer credit consideration at Juniata College, the student must submit an official transcript and also purchase a third-party, course-by-course international transcript translation and evaluation. This evaluation must be secured from a member of either of the two professional associations for credential evaluation services that are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education:

We frequently recommend one of the NACES members, World Education Services, because of positive experiences our students have had with them. 

The official transcript and the credential transcript evaluation should be sent to Reginald Onyido, Senior Associate Director of Admissions at
