    What courses will be accepted as transfer credits?

    Transfer credit will be determined on a course by course equivalency basis. Transfer courses with a C- grade or better will be accepted by BYU–Hawaii as major credit or elective credit. Credit for courses of a remedial nature (usually numbered 99 and below) will not be transferable. BYU–Hawaii does not transfer Grade Point Averages (GPA) when transferring credits from other institutions.

    When courses are evaluated as transferable, the credit will be given for the credit listed on the transcript and may not be the same number of credits the equivalent BYUH class is worth.

    For example, a 4 credit transferrable course that is equivalent to a 3 credit BYUH course may be evaluated as 3 credits + 1 general elective credit equaling 4 total credits for that course, unless otherwise specified. Conversely, a 3 credit transferrable course that is equivalent to a 4 credit BYUH course will be evaluated as 3 credits only.
