Previous College Credits

Transfer Credit

If you have taken college level courses at another institution or earned an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree, it’s important to submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended to the Office of Admission. If you would like to see the how the credits are awarded, please go to the Transfer Equivalency Table to estimate how your courses will transfer. An official evaluation will be completed before your advising appointment for all submitted transcripts.

Credit-by Exam

If you have taken an Advanced Placement (AP) exam, an International Baccalaureate (IB) program, or a College Level Examination (CLEP) test, you may have earned college credit. It’s important to submit official scores to the Registrar’s Office to be evaluated. If you would like to see the how the credits are awarded for AP, IB, and CLEP please go to: Credit by Exam in Course Catalog
