Yes, many students take courses over the summer at regional institutions close to home. This is a great way to make progress on your degree! You can identify potential courses on the registrar’s website (Follow link for Transferring to Otterbein and then Course Equivalency Guides). If the institution you were thinking about is not listed, you can identify a potential course on your own and submit it to the Registrar’s office for review. The process for doing this is called the Transient Course Approval Process. You should always check with your advisor on the course selection and verify the transfer credits through the Registrar’s Office.
In order for the course to transfer to Otterbein, you will need to send a transcript from the institution back to Otterbein when you have successfully completed the course.
For full and detailed information about course transferring, make sure to check out the online catalog.
