Transfer Evauation System
Assessing Your Transfer Credits
Oak Point University offers educational programs beginning at the upper-division course level. As a result, students must complete the general education, pre-requisite, and discipline-specific support courses at another institution. You may download our Academic Catalog to view program-specific requirements.
The information in our Transfer Evaluation System (TES) is provided as a guide to how classes at your current or former school may transfer to Oak Point University. The Registrar’s Office updates our TES frequently. Schools and courses are added to the list on a regular basis.
To help answer some of your transfer credit questions and determine your transfer course(s) and program applicability, please begin by viewing your school(s) in our Transfer Evaluation System.
- If your course(s) or school(s) do not appear in this guide, it does not mean they do not transfer. We are continuously updating our system and would be happy to review your transcript to determine how your prior coursework transfers to Oak Point. You may request an unofficial transcript evaluation, and we will have the course evaluated, posted to TES, and send an email with the results.
- Oak Point University can accept Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), and Bachelor (BA or BS) degrees from regionally accredited institutions to fulfill all the general education requirements as a block transfer. If an AA, AS, BA, or BS is not earned, then we cannot assume all general education requirements are met, and a course-by-course evaluation is required.
- Courses must be from a regionally accredited institution, college level, and have a final grade of “C” or higher.
- Transcripts from colleges and universities outside of the U.S. must be evaluated by a third-party transcript evaluation service to be reviewed for an unofficial credit evaluation.
- The catalog dates for each institution reflect the latest revision date for transfer equivalencies from that school.
- Courses are subject to change as catalogs are received or course descriptions change. If you have questions about a specific course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Transfer Credit, General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI)
Oak Point University is a Receiving-Only member of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). Oak Point University is an upper-division University. An upper-division University begins with the junior year courses of an undergraduate degree up through graduate-level courses. To accommodate transfer students and general education requirements, Oak Point participates in the General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) of the Illinois Articulation Initiative.
Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) degrees or higher are block transferred into the general education requirements. Students who have completed the GECC must also meet programmatic-specific Support Course requirements in all programs in order to be admitted to the University.
Per the IAI website: If your institution is listed as a “Receiving only” institution, you should be aware that your college or university will take a completed GECC package from any of the full participating institutions listed above. However, should you decide to transfer from your “Receiving only” institution to another institution without a completed GECC package, you will not be considered as having completed your general education requirements. It is strongly recommended that you work with your academic advisor at both your current and future institutions in the event that you decide to transfer from a “Receiving only” institution.
