The answer depends on the type of transfer student. There are three basic categories:
Transfer students with an associate degree are required to complete the Columba Cornerstone* course as a requirement of graduation but they do not complete the core curriculum.
Non-freshmen transfer students with more than 24 credits but without an associate degree will have their credits evaluated and applied to the core curriculum as appropriate. They will complete the part of the core curriculum that is not covered by their transfer credits, including the Columba Cornerstone.*
*Columba Cornerstone sections for transfer categories 1 and 2 will be provided in the spring semester.
Transfer freshmen, those students with 23 or fewer credits, are considered incoming freshmen and they complete the core curriculum. Their credits are evaluated for transfer and applied as appropriate to the core curriculum.
