Some approved technical/vocational courses may be transferred from a technical school, junior college, or other two-year degree granting institution. A maximum of twelve semester hours (or four courses) may be transferred for lower-level credit. Up to twelve hours of lower-level credit may also be assigned on the basis of documented work experience, military training, and/or competency testing.
