PEAK for Transfer Students

The College of Idaho accepts up to 70 transfer credits from accredited community colleges and up to 90 transfer credits from accredited four-year colleges and universities. Please see the Transfer Credit policy for specific course and grade acceptance.

There is often a challenge, however, in transforming the credits transferred to the College into a coherent liberal arts course of study on the PEAK model. As far as possible, students, in concert with their advisors, are expected to shape their course of study according to the expectations of the PEAK curriculum.

Alternative Credits (AP and IB) and concurrent/dual-enrollment credits are not considered transfer credits. Although these types of credits may allow a student to enroll in the College with advanced standing, they do not count toward the 28 transfer credits that would allow a student to complete less than the full PEAK curriculum.
