What is a

Transfer Credit

A transfer credit is put towards a current credential at an accredited institution from a separate school that a student may have once studied at. These credits enable students to avoid repeating coursework and graduate sooner. Students are generally able to transfer credits from one degree program to another, along with credits from one institution to another.

A transfer credit allows students to maintain credit for their previous education at a different institution. Transfer credits will be granted depending on how similar the course material is, the final grade awarded, and when and where a course was taken.
