  16. 16. Transferring credits<br />All credits must be transcribed and approved by the university admissions office.<br />Once credits are placed into our operating system called Banner, we can look at your transcripts and see what can be used for our degrees.<br />Credits that are accepted by the university may not be used in your degree. We can only use what is needed. If you have unused credits and your degree has room for free electives, then we will fill that requirement with credits that have no other use for your degree. Not all degrees have room for free electives.<br />It is important to work with an advisor from ECU when taking classes at another college and planning on transferring to ECU. This will help to make sure you are taking the classes that you need and will cut down on unused courses.<br />CREDITS transfer, but GRADES do not. When you transfer to ECU, you start with a new GPA. Since all of our degrees have a GPA requirement to declare, a GPA must be established in order to move on to upper level courses.<br />
  17. 17. Other Considerations<br />It is very common for students to use our majors to prepare for medical programs such as med school, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physicians assistant, chiropractic, dentistry, and veterinarian programs.<br />Please let your advisor know of your intentions to go on to one of these graduate programs so that we can make sure you are in the appropriate prerequisites.<br />If you have a medical program in mind, you can major in anything you want. Most medical programs do not care what your undergraduate degree is.<br />While some of our degrees are an excellent segue into medical programs, they are also viable and terminal degrees that prepare for careers. We ask that you make sure that the degree you choose will fit your career interests in the event that you opt not to go to grad school.<br />
