Transfer Policy for Acceptance of Transfer Credit
Paralegal Studies Program
Gainesville State College has adopted the following policy to be used when a student requests transfer credit for any paralegal course taken at another institution:
Any student seeking to obtain transfer credit for any specific paralegal course taken at another institution must provide the following documentation and information to the Registrar's Office:
- (a) The name and address of the institution;
(b) A transcript or other equivalent showing the course title, date taken, and grade received;
(c) The course syllabus; and
(d) Documentation of whether or not the paralegal program at the institution has obtained ABA approval.
- Upon receipt of the above, the Registrar will consult with the Director of the Gainesville State College Paralegal Program as to whether or not transfer credit shall be given for the course requested.
- Transfer credit will only be allowed if the course complies with all criteria of an equivalent course offered in the Gainesville State College Paralegal Studies program.
- Transfer credit will only be allowed for a course in which the student received a 2.0 or higher.
- The maximum number of legal specialty credit allowed for transfer shall not exceed nine semester hours.
- Gainesville State College will not allow transfer credit for any course which was taken at an institution (other than a University System of Georgia school) which is not ABA approved.
