What is Considered Transferable Credit?

Transferable credit is college-level academic credit completed at a regionally accredited institution.

  • Documentation from the institution stating the instructor of the course as well as their curriculum vitae/educational background.
  • Contact information of who provided the above documentation.
  • Any additional documentation requested by Transfer Services.
