Transfer Credits Allowed
When you apply for admission, you will need to submit official transcripts from each institution you have attended, along with high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores (if you’re 21 or older, you don’t need to submit ACT/SAT scores). After you’ve submitted all of your transcripts, a member of our transcript team will review your transcripts and evaluate how credits may be applied toward your program.
You can also view a comprehensive list of transfer equivalencies to see which credits will transfer at our Transfer Evaluation System website. We accept all credits from courses that resulted in a D- grade or above. However, many of our programs require a C or higher to fulfill major requirements.
