Credit Granted for Previous Education
UCHA will transfer credit for courses taken at institutions accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. This may include other approved massage schools attended during the past 12 months if the credits can be documented through an official transcript and a course description. Credit for other course work taken will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Transfer Credits for courses are taken from a previous post-secondary school may be considered when determining a student’s compliance with UCHA’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards. Transfer hours will be included in the number of hours completed toward the student’s completion of the program. The student must provide an official academic transcript from the school attended.
The final determination of the required content of a transfer course and acceptance of the credit toward the UCHA program will be determined by the President. Before receiving a diploma from UCHA a student is required to complete at least 50% of his/her course work directly from the college. UCHA cannot guarantee that its course credits will be transferable or accepted by another educational institution.
For course work previously taken past 12 months, testing out of a class is allowed provided the student has received credit at another post-secondary school/College and demonstrates to the UCHA President a high qualitative knowledge of the subject matter that meets a minimum of 90% or above the UCHA requirement. Testing out in a class will count as the student has obtained a successful course grade towards completion of the overall program.
UCHA does not offer experiential credit in that Nebraska statue states 83-004.03 Operating Requirements: Sec. 3: Not credit a student with hours except when such hours were earned in the study or practice of massage therapy in accordance with the required curriculum, except massage schools may transfer college or university credit into the massage course of study.
