Transfer of Credits

Requests for transfer credits should be submitted during the enrollment process through the first term of attendance. An official credit evaluation is completed for students as part of the application process as soon as students submit unofficial or official transcripts, along with the transcript evaluation request form, to their admissions representative. Please note that a final list of approved transfer credits cannot be completed until official transcripts have been received by the University. Courses with a grade of ā€œCā€ or higher are generally transferable if the cumulative GPA of course work is a 2.0 or higher and if the course objective and rigor align with those set by Bryan University. All accepted transfer credit counts towards satisfactory academic progress.

Credits can only be approved for college-level courses from an accredited institution recognized by the Department of Education and must meet requirements of the degree program in which the student is pursuing. Official transcripts should be sent to the Office of the Registrar. The University may accept up to 70% of required program credits toward an undergraduate degree, certificate, or associate degree. A majority of the credit must be completed at Bryan University for graduate degrees.

Requests submitted after a student has completed the enrollment process are considered on a case-by-case basis. All requests must be submitted before the first day of a class in which the student is petitioning for transfer credits. Requests submitted after the student has started a class cannot be considered. Transferable credits must have been earned prior to the date of enrollment, with the exception of CLEP, and may not be considered if more than ten (10) years old.

Additional details such as a course catalog or official syllabus may be needed to finalize the evaluation process. All accepted transfer credits are applied toward satisfactory academic progress.

Fitness Programs Transfer Credit

Bryan University may accept transfer credit for prior clock hour programs/certifications completed at institutions recognized by the NCAA. Evaluation and clock hour to credit conversion will be based on our current unit of credit policy.

International Student Transfer Credit

International students should contact an Admissions Representative for information about transferring credits from an institution outside of the United States.

Prior Learning Transfer Credit

Bryan University recognizes that knowledge gained outside of a classroom may be relevant to your certificate or degree program. Learning experiences that resulted in achievement of industry-recognized, third- party certificates may be evaluated for course credit. For credit to be considered, you must submit a copy of your earned certificate to either admissions or the registrar who will pass along your supporting evidence to the program director for credit consideration. A student may only receive a maximum of 20% of the credits available in the program as experiential learning credit.

Students who have completed any 500-clock hour or higher Full-Stack Web Development program and have an earned certificate at another institution may qualify for a block-transfer into the Associate of Arts in Web Development at Bryan University.
