Professional Studies Transfer Information
The Professional Studies Program is VU’s night program for working adults. If you are not a Professional Studies student, click here for Traditional Undergraduate Transfer Information.
Current Professional Studies Students must fill out a Request to Transfer Off-Campus Units form before taking any courses off campus. Without this form, Current Students are not assured that classes will transfer. A course description must be attached to the form for each course listed.
Basic Transfer of Credit Policies for
Professional Studies Current Students
1. A maximum of 80 units may be transferred from a Community College.
2. Community College courses are considered lower division (100 or 200 level), so they do not count toward the 40 Upper Division Units needed to graduate.
3. A grade of “C-” or higher must be earned in order for a course to transfer.
4. Courses must be taken for a letter grade and will not be calculated into your cumulative GPA at Vanguard.
