Transfer/Summer Course Work

Transfer Course Work - attending another institution

  • A student who attends another institution to earn credit which is intended to transfer to Rhodes must review policies, complete, and submit the Transfer Credit Approval Form before taking the intended course. The Chair of the Department at Rhodes (to which the credit may be applied) must sign approval on the Transfer Credit Approval Form before the form is submitted to the Registrar.  To assist in approval, it is beneficial to submit a course description to the department chair along with the approval form. All completed forms may be turned in to Rhodes Express.
  • Once the approved class is completed, the student is responsible for having an official transcript sent to the attention of the Registrar in order for the credit to be added to the academic record.
  • Consortium (Crosstown) Class Registration/Info:  Rhodes - CBU - Univ. of Memphis
    The Crosstown Enrollment Program offers students enrolled at Rhodes College, Christian Brothers University, and The University of Memphis the opportunity to enroll in a select number of courses not offered at their home institutions.
  • Students attending a Rhodes-sponsored, "Maymester" trip need not register for the course. That will be done automatically upon enrollment in the program.

FAQ - How many credits may an enrolled student transfer to Rhodes?
