Transfer Students: Credits in Residency Policy
To fulfill the residency
requirement for an associate degree, a student must earn a
minimum of fifteen semester credit hours from Ferris State. To fulfill the residency
requirement for a bachelor's degree a student must earn a
minimum of thirty semester credit hours from Ferris State. The University
expects that these hours are the final credits earned for the degree.
It is expected
that a maximum of one-half of the total hours required for completion of
the degree at Ferris may be transferred from non-bachelor degree granting
institutions which have articulation agreements with Ferris. In such a
case, additional lower-division courses required for a Ferris bachelor's
degree may be transferred.
degree programs may be exempted from portions of this policy. The
appropriate Ferris State College dean's office should be consulted for
