Transfer Credit Policies

The Sociology Department may accept online courses to count toward the major or the minor.

While there is not an AP or IB examination in Sociology, a qualifying A-level examination score on any of the three, post-2017 Sociology examinations will be considered equivalent to completing SOC 101 or SOC 102. Students will earn four units of credit for each qualifying examination score. Up to eight units may be applied toward the major and up to four units may be applied toward the minor.

Students may apply up to two courses (eight units of credit) in transfer toward the major or one course (four units) in transfer toward the minor.

Students should reference the Transfer Credit section for more details.
