Our policy for transfer of credits/hours is as follows:
Transfer of Credits for Studies at Other Institutions
Florida Medical & Aesthetic International School gives credit for studies at other institutions that are approved within the United States, or proven equivalent United States accredited institutions. To be considered, a minimum grade of 2.0 or “C” must have been earned and courses must be comparable to a FMAIS courses included in the program of study. At least 25 percent of the credits required for completion of the program of enrollment must be earned at our School. Our institution accepts CLEP examinations for transfer of credit for general study courses that may apply.
The transfer of academic credits/hours is evaluated on a course-by-course basis and is ultimately decided by the institution’s Director of Education. The number of credits/hours that may be transferred for each course is determined by establishing credit equivalencies by the institution’s Director of Education once a student has been accepted. The institution will evaluate the transcript, at no cost, and make a written determination regarding any credits that may be considered for transfer. This determination will be made within seven calendar days of receipt of the transcript.
Transfer of Credits Between Programs within the Institution
The institution gives credit for studies for a previous program within the institution. Such credits are accounted and considered if classes previously taken are part of the new program of study.
Transfer of Credits earned at FMAIS to another Institution
The School cannot guarantee transferability of credits earned to any other educational institution. The transfer of credits earned at FMAIS are received at the discretion of the accepting institution. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether credits will be accepted by another institution of the student’s choice.
