Does a student have any kind of rights in regards to arguing for accepting of transfer credits? The sending school is regionally accredited as is the receiving school and the courses are the same. The student suspects that the school is rejecting the credits just to make more profits, by making student retake them.the student was told by asvisors that the credits would be accepted before the student enrolled. This has cost the srudent time and money. Does student have any legal recourse?
You can make an argument, but some "accredited" technical schools are just not up to the standards of other schools and you cannot force a school to water down their standards to accept "accredited" classes from other schools. For example, one widely known technical school in our area is accredited, but rarely does any other school accept their credits. "accreditation" is pretty much a "minimum" you should seek in your school, not an assurance that any employer or any other school will accept their credits.

This takes some effort. Study the course catalogues of both schools. For each course you want to transfer, find a similar course in the new school. Look for similar course credits, syllabus, prerequisites, level, etc. Then put your argument into writing. You might want to retain counsel to do this for you.
If an advisor said the the credits would transfer, I hope that you have that in writing.
