HASS accepts transfer credit from accredited institutions around the world.
Students who plan to study abroad or take courses elsewhere, must obtain Prior Approval. This protects the student by insuring that the courses taken count toward graduation requirements. If a student intends to take a Humanities or Social Sciences course (but not Economics &/or Business—that’s a different department), bring a Prior Approval Form (available at the Registrar’s Office) to Undergraduate Faculty Advisor: Sandy Woodson in Stratton Hall office# 415 for the required signature.
If you have any questions about the viability of a course for transfer, gather as much information as possible—course descriptions, syllabi, etc.—and submit them for assessment. If the information is electronic or can be scanned, email the information to Sandy Woodson.
Foreign Language Policy
Students interested in foreign language instruction but are not sure which course is appropriate, may take a placement test offered by BYU. This test is for placement purposes only; no credit will be awarded based on this (or any other) test. No student is permitted to take a foreign language that is either his/her native language or second language.
