Evaluation of Transfer Credits: 

The Office of Admissions processes the evaluation of credit from other institutions. The course work is entered into established course equivalency tables, which contain the general education course equivalencies established through the Louisiana Board of Regents Statewide Student Transfer Guide and Articulation System and other course equivalencies approved by the appropriate academic department. Credit allowed through this process is, in all cases, subject to review by the college that the student enters to determine applicability toward a particular degree program.

The Undergraduate Admissions Office may determine course equivalencies for general education courses not a part of the course equivalency tables if course descriptions are provided and the equivalency is clearly evident. If the course descriptions are not clearly equivalent, the Admissions Office will require a review and recommendation from the appropriate academic department. Any other courses not contained in the course equivalency tables must be approved by the appropriate academic department before credit can be awarded. Once an equivalency has been determined by either the Undergraduate Admissions Office or by the appropriate academic department, the course is entered into the course equivalency table so that future credit can be applied based on this determination.

Courses evaluated by Southeastern for transfer credit from regionally accredited institutions will carry the grade earned at the institution where the courses were taken if the grading system used is comparable to Southeastern's grading system. However, credits earned at foreign colleges and universities will carry the grade of "P." Technical and vocational credits are not accepted, nor are credit accepted for varsity sports.

Transfer students who have questions concerning their transfer evaluation may request that a review be made of these by their academic dean, their department head, the Director of Admissions and/or the department heads in which the courses are offered at Southeastern. Requests must be made in writing to the Associate Director of Admissions and must list the specific course or courses in question. The student may be required to furnish course descriptions and/or course syllabi and may be required to meet with the appropriate reviewer before a final determination can be made.


Students who do not meet the regular admission criteria may be admissible through an alternate path. Contact an Admissions counselor at 985-549-5637 or admissions@southeastern.edu to review your options.
