Transfer of College Credits

Once the student completes a high school EEP course, the grade earned becomes part of an official Rhode Island College transcript. Students may use the credits at RIC or transfer them to a large number of colleges and universities across the U.S.

There are hundreds of public and private 4-year institutions that accept EEP credits. A partial list appears below. EEP credits have been awarded specific course credit, elective credit and/or exemption from required courses. No matter how the credit is applied, it reduces the number of credits the student needs to graduate, and lessens the financial burden on families. It is standard procedure that transfer credits do not have grade designations, but are noted as credits earned. While a minimum transfer grade is generally a "C", some colleges will expect a "B-" or better.

It is the student's responsibility to list EEP credits earned on college applications and to send an official Rhode Island College transcript, to any college or university to which they apply. The college will supply a transcript for those students applying to Rhode Island College. Students may also wish to keep a copy of their EEP course syllabus and samples of their coursework if proof is required of the course's high academic standards.
