TRANSFER STUDENTS

Transfer Students and Financial Aid

Students transferring from another college or university and applying for financial aid must request that official academic transcripts be sent to the Admission and Records Office at ENMU-Roswell. This is a requirement for any transfer student applying for financial aid.

The assessment of a student’s academic progress will be based on the student’s applicable academic record to include all credit hours attempted from other institutions, whether or not financial aid was received.

Students Transferring to ENMU-Roswell

Students transferring to ENMU‑Roswell must file official transcripts from each college or university attended. Students with fewer than 30 semester hours of acceptable transfer credit must also have official high school transcripts sent. If students on suspension from another institution wish to enroll in courses at ENMU‑Roswell, they may appeal to the Academic Standards Committee for an admission waiver. They should be WARNED, however, that credits earned during suspension periods may not be accepted by receiving institutions.

Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Credit is accepted for college‑level work from institutions accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation (CORPA). Courses which would not be accepted include, but are not limited to, some technical/occupational courses, doctrinal religion courses and basic skills level courses. ENMU-Roswell does not grant credit for work experience.

Credit for college-level work from an institution that is a candidate for accreditation by a CORPA recognized body will be awarded after 15 credit hours have been earned at ENMU‑Roswell with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.

To further enhance articulation between all state-supported institutions in New Mexico, ENMU-Roswell adopts the principle of treating transfer students as native students in the application of credit toward certificate or degree requirements.

Evaluation of Transfer Credit

Evaluation of the applicability of acceptable credits that are transferable to a students’ degree program is performed by Admissions and Records staff.

Students who wish to request a transfer credit evaluation must complete an Admission Application to ENMU-Roswell, and have original official academic transcripts sent directly to the University from each institution previously attended. Transfer credits are evaluated when all transcripts for that student have been received. Applicants are required to declare a major for evaluation of transfer credit. Transfer credits are evaluated only for students seeking a degree or certificate. Transfer grade point averages are used in the calculation of grade point averages for graduation “With Honors” only. Foreign students who wish to have foreign transcripts evaluated for transfer credit must provide an English translation of all transcripts. The English translation must demonstrate how the courses are equivalent in grade and content to those taught in the United States. Please contact the director of Admissions and Records for more information.

Transfer Students Probation and Suspension

If students on probation from another university wish to enroll at ENMU-Roswell, their first semester of attendance will be a probationary semester. Students may be suspended at the end of that semester if they fail to obtain a 2.0 semester grade point average.

If students on suspension from another institution wish to enroll in courses at ENMU-Roswell, they may appeal to the Academic Standards Committee for an admission waiver. They should be warned, however, that credits earned during suspension periods may not be accepted by receiving institutions.
