Closing Requests

If an institution sends a transfer credit request for which there is no matching program or course at the receiving institution, the receiving institution has the option to close a request rather than establishing or denying credit. When a request is closed, the sending institution is notified that no formal agreement will be established. If a student wishes to transfer the course to the receiving institution, the request will be evaluated for credit on a case-by-case basis.

Requests for credit should only be closed when there is no matching program or course and the receiving institution does not want to create a formal articulation.
