Transfer College Credits

Your prior college coursework and life experiences can earn you credits that save time and money on your education.

Apply external credits you earned at prior institutions toward up to 75% of your undergraduate credential.* To begin the process of having your credits for prior learning evaluated, contact each of your prior institutions and request that your official transcripts be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar.

Use our calculator to estimate how tuition reductions, course load, and prior learning credits impact your cost of tuition and anticipated graduation date.
