USciences Online welcomes certain transfer credits from other institutions for degree and certificate programs. Transferring credits saves money and time by extracting value from your previous education experience.
How to Apply to Transfer Credits
Upon acceptance to USciences Online, credits are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. With some exceptions, transfer credit is granted for comparable coursework completed within the last 10 years at a regionally accredited college or university.
Transfer Credit Requirements
USciences Online may accept a maximum of 90 credits transferred from an accredited undergraduate program with the approval of the Director of Online Academics. Transfer credits require a grade of “C” or better. The coursework must meet the specific requirements of your program of study.
All undergraduate applicants for transfer with less than nine college credits are required to submit an official final high school transcript at the time of application.
Any non-degree transfer credits for courses completed 10 or more years prior to enrollment may require additional validation.
Policies for Graduate Students
Graduate students may transfer a maximum of 12 credits toward a Graduate Degree and 3 credits toward a Graduate Certificate from a regionally accredited graduate program with the approval of the Director of Online Academics. Graduate transfer credits require a course grade of “B-minus” or better to receive consideration.
Policies for International Students
Applicants must have all previous degrees evaluated by World Education Services (WES) or another NACES member organization. Original copies of transcripts from foreign institutions will not be sufficient in evaluating these credentials. When choosing the type of evaluation, make sure to select course-by-course. You may even be able to save time and money by transferring credits toward a USciences Online degree or certificate. Decisions regarding transfer credits are made during or after the formal application process.
