US University will accept transfer credit from accredited colleges or universities for courses designated as baccalaureate credit in the college catalog. The University reserves the right to determine the extent to which transfer credits satisfy requirements.
The University accepts up to 90 semester credits to the BS and BA programs.
The University accepts up to 30 percent of the semester credits required to complete the specific master’s level program from accredited graduate level institutions provided the transferred course(s) meet the same general content standards as the University course.
To determine which courses will transfer, follow the steps below:
- Make an appointment for a personalized education plan with an admissions advisor
- Notify your admissions advisor of your desire to transfer credit and provide a list of courses to be transferred or unofficial transcripts from the schools you have attended to receive an unofficial evaluation
- Request official transcripts from all previously attended institutions (This includes institutions where you may have attended and withdrawn without receiving credit) for an official evaluation.
- Students who completed university coursework outside the United States must submit transcripts that have been translated and evaluated. See the Foreign Credential Services for additional information on this requirement and list of acceptable agencies.)
- Transcripts should come directly from the issuing institution to academic records and should be sent to:
