Transfer Profile

An American Education • A British Setting • A Global Future

Welcome to Richmond, The American International

University in London. Located in one of the great world capitals, Richmond distinguishes itself as a truly international university by enrolling students from over 100 countries. 

The University’s academic program, which encompasses business, communications, international relations, psychology, and the arts, reflects the American tradition of broad-based core studies.

Significantly, Richmond’s underlying theme is globalism. The 21st century needs leaders who are keenly aware of—and competent within—the diversity that exists in the world. The University’s academic program is particularly relevant to those who aspire to leadership positions on the world stage, whatever their chosen profession.

Richmond has campuses in two of London’s most appealing communities: Richmond upon Thames and Kensington. The Richmond Hill campus, which dates back to the founding of Richmond College in 1843, is the location for first-year and second-year students. Upper-division students typically relocate to the campus in Kensington, central London, where graduate studies are also pursued.

Transfer credit evaluation
How are my previously earned courses evaluated for transfer? 

Once a student is admitted to Richmond, a formal Transfer Credit Evaluation is performed. The aim of the evaluation is to:
• Fully consider all
courses for possible transfer credit
• Ensure the student receives the most useful transfer credits (This will depend on the choice of major and point of entry into the Richmond academic program.)
• Communicate to the student the estimated length of time to graduation
What is the minimum grade requirement for my previously earned courses to be considered for transfer?
• Grades must be at the US university standard of C level or higher.
Will all of my courses be considered for transfer?
• Up to 75 credits may be transferred toward the Richmond BA degree.
• At most, 60 credits may be transferred from two-year colleges.
• Students must submit all official college transcripts in order to receive credit.
