Transfer Students

Will Your Credits Transfer?  Yes!

  • Your credits must be earned from a regionally accredited college or university
  • You must be in good academic and social standing from these colleges and universities
  • Your college-level credit earned must be C- or better

If you are transferring from a school that does not hold a regional accreditation, your credits are subject to review.

If you would like to see how courses will transfer prior to your visit you can do a self-evaluation by going to transferology.com.
