*NOTMJ means: not major, general elective credit that will apply to the overall credits needed to graduate (120). These credits are not found equivalent to an one-to-one UMW course. These credits do not satisfy any requirements for the major unless a re-evaluation is submitted by the student. The NOTMJ course(s) also do not apply to the Gen-Ed requirements unless a re-evaluation is submitted by the Student to be re-evaluated by the Gen-Ed Committee. Although Modern Foreign Language courses transfer as general elective credit, they will satisfy the foreign language requirement.

**Applies to Spanish – Language (AS), Spanish – First Language (AS), and Spanish – Literature (AS).

***Guidelines Covering the Application and/or Deletion of Transfer Credits. The following provisions apply to transfer courses taken at other institutions.78

1. Transfer credits will be forfeited and removed from the record if the equivalent course or courses are completed at UMW or another institution (and transferred into UMW for credit).

2. Transfer credits are counted as completed credits toward graduation, and thus affect all decisions regarding probation, suspension, and dismissal.

3. A student may request the permanent deletion of transfer credits from his or her record at any time except when he or she is on disciplinary or honor suspension or after academic dismissal.
