STI will accept credits from any post secondary institution accredited by one of the major regional accrediting associations, e.g., Higher Learning Commission, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (NCA-CIHE).  Acceptance of transfer credits is contingent upon the student having completed the course or courses with a grade of “C” or better, and that in the judgment of the Registrar, the course credit and content is similar to that contained in the STI course.  Transferred credits are not used in determining grade point average.  Go to our main webpage for additional information.
