The Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Issues (CI Centre)

The maximum transfer credit award possible from this specific internal recommendation varies based on the course(s) completed; individual transfer credit award will vary based on the requirements of a student's selected degree program, any additional documents submitted for transfer credit evaluation (TCE), and the University's TCE policies.

Any credit awarded from this internal recommendation is considered nontraditional transfer credit.

Eligibility:

Graduate students must be pursuing one of the following programs at the University:

  • Any graduate level degree program

Students are most likely to maximize their transfer credit award if they are pursuing the following program:

  • Master of Arts in Intelligence Studies

Guidelines:

  • A student has met the terms of the agreement and is eligible for possible TCE review if they completed the specific course(s) through The Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Issues (CI Centre) and they have not yet had an Initial TCE completed.
  • If an Initial TCE has already been prepared and the student completed the specific course(s) through the CI Centre after the official evaluation was completed, they can send in the updated paperwork. A TCE Update Request Form must also be submitted to initiate the review process.
  • If a student changes their degree program, they are eligible for a review of their CI Centre training certificate(s) for possible transfer credit.
  • If a student has already had an Initial TCE completed, their documentation has already been reviewed, and no additional paperwork is to be submitted, they are NOT eligible for this internal policy.

Students must send in a copy of their certificate(s) of completion from the CI Centre along with a TCE Application. Documentation of successful completion may make a student eligible for the following transfer credit recommendation depending on their specific graduate degree program requirements:

Omnibus credit is transfer credit which applies to a student's specific area of study within their Major/Concentration requirements, but for which APUS does not offer an equivalent course. Students for whom this credit does not directly apply may have the same number of semester hours applied as Elective credit depending on their specific program requirements.
 

 
Per university policy, the course completion date(s) must be within ten years of the TCE request date for a student to be able to receive transfer credit.

This internal recommendation policy is valid for the programs listed which may be reviewed each catalog year and credit recommendations may change if the programs or internal recommendation policies are altered and/or re-evaluated.
