A maximum of 12 quarter credits of vocational/technical credits are accepted. Credit by examination through testing programs such as CLEP, DANTES, NY Board of Regents College Examination, or college challenge exams are accepted for humanities and social science credits. These credits must be listed on a transcript from a college or university with institutional accreditation. The following types of credit are not accepted toward the degree:
A student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher at the completion of the Bachelor of Science degree requirements to be eligible to receive the degree. Transfer credits from prior undergraduate courses will not contribute to the cumulative GPA, unless they are from courses offered through UWS (e.g., online undergraduate courses). For current DC and NMD program students, continuing enrollment in the Bachelor of Science program is contingent upon eligibility for continuing enrollment in the DC and NMD programs through the duration of enrolling in the human biology major courses, typically the first five quarters of the program. Eligibility for students transferring to UWS from another chiropractic or health professions school who apply to the bachelor’s program will be assessed individually. Students must complete at least the last 25 percent of the credits for the degree while in residence as a matriculated student at UWS to be eligible for the degree
