Transfer Credit Policies

To be eligible for transfer credit, an approved course must be taken at an approved college and completed with a grade of C or better.

We don’t require transfer students to have taken any specific courses in the past. Instead, we offer general guidelines to prepare you for a successful transition. As part of our application review process, we evaluate your courses from other schools and institutions. If you’re admitted, you’ll receive a preliminary assessment that shows an estimate of your accepted credits. Once you enroll, you’ll begin an official credit evaluation.
