awards academic credit for course work taken on a noncredit basis only when
there is documentation that the noncredit course work is equivalent to a
designated credit experience. (Noncredit to credit)
Policies and criteria for Credit by Examination, Military Credit and Credit for Non-Collegiate Programs are defined and published in the 2011-2012 Academic Catalog. The University of South Carolina Upstate (USC Upstate) accepts credit for non-collegiate programs as recommended by the American Council on Education. The process requires documentation with final determination of credit in these cases by the dean of the college or school where the student is enrolled. This process ensures all course work and outcomes are at the appropriate collegiate level. USC Upstate assumes responsibility for the academic quality of all credit recorded on the institution’s transcript.
