• Transfer Credit Policies

    At CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies, we value adult students and the real-world experience that you bring to the classroom. That's why we are committed to simplifying the transfer process and help you reach your ultimate goal – a bachelor's degree.

    Through CCU's generous transfer credit policies, you may be able to transfer up to 90 college credits that you previously earned at a regionally or nationally accredited college or university toward a CCU bachelor’s degree.

    Transferring Credits to CCU from an Accredited College or University

    A CCU Enrollment Counselor will help review your transcripts for previous coursework completed, and match major courses taken at those institutions with similar courses offered at CCU where applicable.

    Transferring Credits to CCU from a College in the Colorado Community College System

    If you attended a college in the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) and earned an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree, you are guaranteed admission to CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies for up to 12 months after graduation. Note: Because of program capacity and specialized entry requirements, there are no guarantees of admission to specific undergraduate degree or certificate programs.
