Chaminade University will waive the remaining general education core requirements if a student has:
- Earned an associate or bachelors degree from regionally accredited university, excluding vocational, technical and professional degrees or
- Completed all general education requirements at prior institution.
Transfer students who come to Chaminade with an Associate of Arts (AA), an Associate of Science (AS) or bachelor degree OR who have otherwise completed general education requirements from an accredited institution are eligible to receive a waiver of Chaminade’s General Education requirements.
Note that all students must still meet a minimum of 120 credits in order to satisfy bachelor degree requirements (some programs require more than 120 credits) or 60 credits to satisfy associate degree requirements. Courses taken for fulfillment of the General Education may also count toward major requirements.
To be eligible for the General Education waiver, applicants must either submit:
- An official college transcript with degree conferred (AA, AS, BA, BS, BSN)
- Verification from current school (e.g. Academic Advisor) confirming completion of general education requirements – can be submitted via email with subject line “General Education Verification” including full name of student.
Documents must be sent officially to the Office of Admissions at [email protected] before the start of the academic year.
