Transfer Credit Policy
Bryan University offers generous transfer credit. 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 “C” 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.
Credits can only be approved for college-level courses from an accredited institution and must meet requirements of the degree program in which the student is pursuing. Once transcripts are submitted, preliminary results are communicated within five business days. Official transcripts should be submitted to an admissions representative or to the Office of the Registrar. The university accepts up to 30 credits toward an associate degree. 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.
For Court Reporting, only academic and machine courses earned at a school approved by the National Court Reporting Association (NCRA) or from an accredited institution recognized by the Department of Education will be considered. Court Reporting machine classes may be considered based on speed examination of the applicant by Bryan University.
International students should contact an Admissions Representative for information about transferring credits from an institution outside of the United States.
Veteran/Military Transfer Credit
Transfer credits from regionally or nationally accredited post-secondary institutions, as recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), may be accepted as courses for transfer into undergraduate, graduate degree, and certification programs. The approval of transfer credits is at the sole discretion of Bryan University. Official transcripts must be submitted for evaluation as part of the enrollment process. For Bryan University’s 100 percent online programs, active-duty service members may be required to complete up to 30 percent of the program online to satisfy academic residency requirements (up to 25 percent requirement for residential programs). In addition, Bryan transfer credits may be approved for completion of formal military courses as recommended through official transcripts (Army/ACE Registry Transcript System, Community College of Air Force, Sailor/Marine/ACE Registry Transcript, Registry of Credit Recommendations, or National Registry for Training Programs). Credits will be applied as approved by the Office of the Registrar. Credit may also be given for completion of approved examinations, including CLEP, DSST, and ECE as outlined in the ACE guide to Educational Credit by Examination.
