Also, advisors who do not have a student's transfer transcript will not be responsible if a student enrolls in a class for which he/she has received credit at another institution. A student planning to use credit taken at another institution to fulfill graduation requirements must have an official transcript on file in the Registrar's Office before consideration of the transfer credit will be given.
