Transfer Credits (non-regionally accredited)
C of O will consider awarding transfer credit for courses completed with a C- or higher grade through a non-regionally accredited college or university provided they are not vocational or developmental. Students seeking transfer credit should have an official transcript showing final grades sent directly to the Registrar's Office following completion of their first semester at C of O. Once the official transcript arrives the student should contact the Registrar's Office to communicate the exact courses he or she would like considered for evaluation. The Registrar's Office may request additional documentation at that time such as course descriptions, syllabi, and instructor credentials.
Veterans and active military are automatically awarded credit for IDS 103 Patriotic Education I and PED 101 Lifetime Wellness based of documented completion of basic training. Additionally, students are asked to request a copy of their military transcript be sent to the Registrar's Office for evaluation. College of the Ozarks awards credit for military training based on the recommendations of the American Council on Education.
