It is important to note that the college will only accept general education or elective courses for transfer from institutions whose business schools or programmes are not programmatically accredited by, or in candidacy for accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programmes (ACBSP) or the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). It is imperative to note that only credits transfer, individual grades do not. As such, grades from transfer credit courses will not be applied to a student's cumulative average at Cherub College. The College will accept up to a maximum of 24 credits as a transfer. 

Admission Criteria for Non-Traditional Students

Cherub College welcomes applications from persons over the age of 25, or who do not meet the "traditional" student category. These may be students that completed high school studies and did not continue to further education, or students that may have dabbled in further education and for one reason or another did not complete. There are two ways in which these non-traditional students can matriculate into the college. They are as follows:

1.) Direct Entry : Adult students that meet the normal pre-requisites for admission to a degree programme. Alike a standard freshman or transfer admission, prospective students would be required to submit the appropriate documentation corresponding to the relative category of admission. 

2.) Adult Preparatory Entry : The Adult Preparatory Entry Programme is designed for adult students that do not meet the admission requirements to matriculate via the Direct Entry Scheme. Students that did not earn their High School Diploma or an equivalent must first enroll in the High School Diploma Equivalency Programme (HSDEP). Upon successful completion of the HSDEP, students may matriculate into the college preparatory programme and then onto degree studies. Students that have earned a High School Diploma but have not completed with satisfactory scores in the BGCSE or SAT Examinations may matriculate directly into the College Preparatory Programme. Upon successful completion of the College Preparatory Programme, they may enroll in degree studies.
