However, based on the criteria listed below for transferrable college-level credits completed at a regionally-accredited degree-granting post-secondary institution,** the FYE 1001 requirement shall be deemed as waived or met.  Rules related to Palm Beach Atlantic University's current transfer credit policy noted in Academic Policies  apply.  

For transfers who have successfully completed:

  •   30 or more transferrable credits OR
  •   Between 25 and 29 transferrable credits AND
  •   A closely equivalent FYE or College Success course with a grade of "C-" or above

** PBA's 30 credit hour residency requirement applies to transfer credits completed at degree-granting postsecondary institutions solely with national accreditations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education at the time the coursework was completed.  Upon the successful completion of 30 credit hours at PBA (with a 2.0 PBA cumulative GPA or higher), students must seek transfer credit validations for closely equivalent FYE or College Success courses in which a grade of "C-" or above has been earned.  Please refer to PBA's transfer credit policy noted in Academic Policies  for further related details.
