How Credit is Awarded
Credit is awarded for college-level coursework completed at institutions accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). (Foreign institutions must be recognized by the Ministry of Education in that country.) Courses must be similar in nature, level, and content to a course in our undergraduate curriculum and applicable to one of our academic programs. Continuing education courses, graduate-level courses, and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational, or doctrinal in nature are not transferable.
Courses completed at other colleges or universities that have descriptions closely matching the descriptions of courses taught at the home campus will generally transfer as direct course equivalents.
If you have completed coursework at a University of Wisconsin or Wisconsin Technical College System campus, you can visit Transfer Wisconsin and use a variety of Transfer Tools to evaluate how your credits might transfer to your HIMT home campus.
Once you have been admitted as a transfer student and confirm your intention to enroll, your home campus will conduct a complete credit evaluation.
Our advisers are available Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT.
