Transfer Policies

You’ve worked hard for the college credit you have earned, and we want to help you save time and money as you pursue your second degree. Our goal is to help you transfer as much of that coursework as possible, and our admissions counselors and transcript evaluators will help see to it that you get the most out of your previous experience.

Otterbein accepts credits from two and four-year institutions that are fully accredited by the appropriate regional accrediting agencies. Students applying for transfer to Otterbein will receive an official evaluation of their prior college credits after acceptance and once all official transcripts have been received from all previously attended institutions.

Transfer credit will only be given for courses in which the student has received a grade of “C-“ or higher.  While there is no limit to the number of credits that may be transferred from accredited four-year institutions, a maximum of 64 semester hours may be transferred from all two-year institutions combined.
