Transfer Information

Transferability of Courses

Transfer students face unique challenges when selecting a new school at which to complete their education. A primary consideration is the transferability of the courses already taken. We want to expedite your transfer to ORU.


Accrediting Institutions

ORU accepts liberal arts courses from regionally accredited institutions as well as courses from schools accredited by the International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA), the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Articulation agreements between ORU and ICAA institutions regarding the transfer of credit are administered according to the ICAA Articulation Program.

Technical or vocational courses are not ordinarily credited toward the liberal arts degree. No credit is given for any course with less than a "C" level grade. Transfer credits from institutions that are not regionally accredited may be accepted on the same basis they are accepted by the reporting institution in their own state. ORU may accept courses demonstrated as acceptable to at least three recognized accredited institutions.

Certification, diploma, associate degree and other pre-bachelor degree programs issued by institutions not accredited by regional accrediting agencies are not accepted for block credit. Courses in these programs may be evaluated individually according to ORU credit transfer policies.
