Transfer Credits and Articulation Agreements

Transfer Credit Policies

Transfer accepts are guaranteed a 48-hour turn-around on credit evaluations. Our flexible credit policy allows students to transfer up to 90 credits from an accredited institution.  In general, a "C-" in a college-level course is the minimum grade required to transfer a course. We also have several articulation agreements to ease the transfer process and qualify students for priority scholarships.

What is an articulation agreement?

An Articulation Agreement is a formal agreement between two participating schools detailing the process by which credits and degrees at one institution may transfer or are equivalent to the other institution. These are designed to help students make a smooth transition from one school to the next educational level without experiencing delays, duplication of courses, or loss of credit. 

Levels of articulation agreements.

  • High School credits to College level
  • Professional Certification Program to College Level Degree
  • Associate (2-year) Degree to a Bachelor's (4-year) Degree
  • Bachelor's (4-year) Degree programs to a Master's Degree
  • Dual JD/MBA Degree
