Credit and Transfer Information
If you are a current Poole student and want to take courses at another institution, we encourage you to research courses at local institutions or community colleges and use the Course Equivalency tool to see what will transfer. If you find a course that is transferrable, complete the Course Transfer Request form here and turn it into your advisor. Your advisor will evaluate the course(s) and let you know if it is approved. If approved, you will receive an email and a copy of the approval form will be placed in your file. You then must ensure the transcript is sent to Undergraduate Admissions after you complete the course.
