College of Health Sciences
Students are expected to complete their degree requirements at the campus to which they originally matriculated. Transfer between campuses is permitted only under extenuating and specific circumstances in accordance with the procedures described below.
Intercampus transfer requests will be considered only if the addition of a student to the class at the corresponding campus will not cause enrollment to exceed the capacity and enrollment limit established for that campus. To be eligible for intercampus transfer consideration, the student must be in good academic standing at the time of the request. Prior to accepting a transfer request for consideration, the student shall be required to document that he/she has sought and received financial aid counseling about the implications of a campus transfer.
No request for transfer shall be considered if the request is received by the program after clinical placement assignments have been completed for that student. Any approved transfer that is executed by the student is final; requests to return to the original campus will not be considered. Approved transfers may be executed only at the conclusion of an academic quarter; however, it is strongly recommended that they occur at the end of academic year, rather than during the academic year.
- A student seeking an intercampus transfer is encouraged to submit his/her written transfer request and supporting documentation to the Program/School Director prior to January 15th. The request must specify the intended date of the transfer. The supporting documentation must also include evidence of financial aid counseling and understanding of any financial aid implications of a transfer. Students must meet with the Program/School Director to discuss their intent to request a transfer prior to doing so.
- All requests will be reviewed and acted upon within 10 working days of receipt.
- The Program/School Director shall inform the CHS Dean of the intercampus transfer request.
- The Program/School Director shall review and assess the merits and advisability of the transfer based on the governing principles of this policy.
- The Program/School Director shall present his/her findings and conclusions to the CHS Dean and submit a written response to the student within this 10-day period.
- All approved requests will be signed by the Program/School Director and countersigned by the CHS Dean prior to distribution to the student.
- Denial of an intercampus transfer request may be appealed to the CHS Dean, only if the existence of an enrollment vacancy at the intended campus can be demonstrated.
- Following receipt of the letter from the Program/School Director informing the student of the decision to deny the transfer request, the student has 5 working days to submit a written appeal to the CHS Dean.
- To be considered, an appeal must be based on substantial new information, documentable evidence of bias, or procedural error by the program.
- The CHS Dean shall review and act upon on appeal within 10 working days after receipt of the written appeal.
- The CHS Dean shall review and assess the appeal of the intercampus transfer request based on the governing principles of this policy.
- The CHS Dean shall prepare a written response to the student concerning the appeal decision with a copy to the Program/School Director.
- The decision of the CHS Dean is final.
