Judgment of Compliance
Davidson College is in compliance with Comprehensive Standard 3.4.4.
Rationale for Judgment of Compliance
Davidson has a defined and published policy for transfer credits, Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate classes, and other credits students take through joint enrollment programs at other regionally accredited institutions. The policy is established by the Faculty in its academic regulations. Individual academic departments determine acceptable scores and appropriate equivalencies for AP and IB course credits, and the appropriate department chair determines whether a transfer credit awarded by the Registrar may count toward a major or minor. The Davidson College Catalog states that the Registrar makes all final decisions about transfer credits within the framework of the Faculty’s academic regulations. The General Policy on transfer credits is published in the College Catalog and on the Registrar’s Web site.
