Transfer Credits

Make your previous college courses work for you

Credits earned at another institution will be transferred and applied toward degree requirements under the following policies:

  • To be considered for transfer, all credit must appear on an official transcript.
  • The credit-granting institution must be regionally accredited.
  • Foreign transcripts must be accompanied by official copies of translations and course-by-course evaluations done by World Education Services (WES). Applications are available at WES.
  • Only general education courses that are required in the curriculum of the student’s professional program will be transferred.
  • Only courses with a minimum grade of “C” (2.00) or higher will be accepted for credit.
  • Transfer credit will be recorded on the transcript during the first trimester in which the student enrolls as a degree-seeking student.
  • The total number of credits transferred may not exceed those allowed by the residency policy. The residency policy states that a student must complete 36 trimester credits at Adventist University (formerly known as Florida Hospital College) to earn a Bachelor of Science degree.
  • Students who wish to transfer courses from a professional program must petition the respective department for evaluation of credit.
  • Courses that are not clearly defined on a transcript may not be automatically transferred. The student will be asked to submit course descriptions and syllabi for further evaluation.

Maximize your previous hard work. If you are not sure whether your credits will transfer, please contact Adventist University today for a free personal assessment of your college transfer credit.

      Thank you for your interest in the Florida Hospital College Radiologic Sciences degree. In order to qualify for our program, you would need to become registered with the ARRT prior to acceptance. You can learn more about how to become registered by visiting the ARRT website at https://www.arrt.org/.

    Can airforce radiology training credits be accepted

    • jrodriguez says:

      The Community College of the Airforce is a regionally accredited college, so we are able to evaluate those courses and possibly transfer them into our program.

    I graduated from an accredited school in August 1983. It was a hospital based program so I don’t have an associates degree. What will I need to do? Thanks

    I, like Mindy, graduated in 1983 from an accredited x ray school and cross trained into ultrasound. I have my RT, RT(M), ARDMS, and RVT credentials. Will any of this transfer to credits toward a ultrasound degree?

The remaining credits to achieve your baccalaureate degree can be completed with us online. Your enrollment specialist emailed you more info.

    I am currently at a community college and I am almost finished with my AA degree and would like to transfer over after I graduate, however I have never taken ACT or SAT. Do I need to take those before I apply to this college? Or do I just have to submit my TEAS score?

    • jrodriguez says:

      The eligibility for the RN to BSN program requires that you have already attained your AS in Nursing and have an active license. If you are not a registered nurse and looking to pursue this path, I suggest that you contact our campus at 407-303-7747. They will be happy to guide you as to the steps you need to take to attain your goal of becoming an RN.

    I have an Associates in Health Science and Radiologic Sciences. I am registered with ARRT and RDMS. How many credits can I transfer in and how many would I need to complete my Bachelor’s of Science in sonography?
