A new Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) policy concerning transfer credit has been approved and will take effect the beginning of Summer 2015 (i.e., June 1, 2015).  As a TBR institution we are following the TBR timeline to implement this new policy. 

Students taking courses at another school Summer 2015 (or later) to have transfer work sent back to U of M for your academic record should be aware of and consider the following:

What Is Changing about Transfer Credit

  • Beginning with Summer 2015, grades associated with transfer coursework taken from that point forward will not be used in calculating the Cumulative Overall GPA or the Cumulative Overall Combined GPA. (I have a question about this)

What Remains the Same about Transfer Credit

  • It is still important that the student report any coursework taken at other institutions. (I have a question about this)
  • Grades will be recorded on the U of M record so that they will be available to the advisor and the graduation analyst.(I have a question about this)
  • Grades for work taken as part of U of M’s Study Abroad program will continue to be posted to the academic record and reflected in the Cumulative Overall GPA and the Cumulative Overall Combined GPA.(I have a question about this)
  • Credit hours for coursework passed at other institutions will continue to be reflected in the U of M earned hours.(I have a question about this)
  • The University’s current repeat policy will remain in effect.(I have a question about this)
  • Transfer work already on the record for terms prior to Summer 2015 will continue to be reflected in the Cumulative Overall GPA and the Cumulative Overall Combined GPA.(I have a question about this)

Students who plan to attend other institutions to have coursework transferred back to U of M are being instructed to discuss their plans with the advisor first. If you need clarification, please use the question submission buttons above, or the link below.

I have a question that is not directly connected to any of the points above
