Policies on Transferring Credit from Other Institutions
Florida Palms University accepts transfer credits applicable to an applicant’s program of study from other eligible institutions. To apply for transfer credit, students must send an official copy of their transcript to the Academic Department for review and complete the corresponding paperwork for each transfer course.

Credit for undergraduate programs may be granted only for courses in which grades of “C” or better have been earned (2.00 GPA or higher). Students must complete at a minimum 25% of an undergraduate program, and a minimum of 90% of a graduate program at Florida Palms University in order to be eligible for graduation. Transfer credits for Graduate programs will be considered on a case by case basis. Credit may be granted only for courses in which grades of “B” or better have been earned (3.00 GPA or higher).

Policies on Course or Program Cancellation
UNIR offers courses based on the students’ needs. However, if a course or program cancellation arises, due notice will be given to students. A decision to cancel a course is at the discretion of the Academic Department of Florida Palms University. Upon making such decisions, the University will notify the potential and enrolled students by way of email, hard copy mail, and if appropriate, via telephone. This decision would be based on an enrollment substantially below the expected level, and the pattern of levels of past enrollment and/or the unavailability of an appropriate instructor. The Florida Palms University refund policy will apply.
