Requirements for Students with an Associate’s Degree

Students holding associate’s degrees from accredited colleges are encouraged to enroll in the College. Students may earn a bachelor’s degree upon completion of two or more additional years of full-time study; see the advisor in the major to determine a plan of study. The following regulations apply:

  1. Students must complete the equivalent of the specified University core.
  2. In all baccalaureate programs, a minimum of 64 hours must be taken at the 2000 to 4000 levels; of these a minimum of 32 hours must be taken at the 3000 and 4000 levels. Coursework from other institutions is accepted at the level at which the course was taught at that institution.

Admission with Transfer Credit/Change of College

Students with satisfactory academic records wishing to transfer into the College of Health and Human Services must meet the minimum entrance requirements of The University of Toledo. After submission of official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended and acceptance by the College, transfer courses are evaluated. The evaluation process should be completed before the first term of attendance to avoid duplication of credit.

Students in good standing who wish to change from another college within The University of Toledo to the College of Health and Human Services should make an appointment with a college advisor in the Office of Student Services to discuss the transfer and have academic records reviewed. All program requirements, including University core, must be fulfilled as specified in the catalog for the year in which the student enters the College. All undergraduate hours attempted and earned at The University of Toledo, as well as the GPA, will transfer.

Health Science Majors: minimum 12 hours of earned college-level credit and 2.7 cumulative GPA to transfer

Criminal Justice, Paralegal Studies, and Social Work majors: 2.2 cumulative GPA if 12-29 hours of earned college-level credit; 2.4 cumulative GPA if 30-59 hours; and 2.5 cumulative GPA if 60+ hours

Readmission of Former Students

Undergraduate students who discontinue course work for a period of at least one academic year (not including summer) must request readmission to the University. If students have taken any course work at another institution during the time they have been away from the University (other than transient status), they must complete a new application in the Office of Undergraduate Admission and meet transfer admission requirements.

Students who have not taken course work for more than 12 months must comply with the college requirements at the time of readmission.
