Transferring Credits to Online Programs

Our University is an ideal institution for students who want to complete or further their education. Our online bachelor degree programs typically require that you have a minimum of 48 semester college credits completed for admission to the program.

General Admissions Requirements:  To be eligible for general admissions you must have a combined cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher (on a 4.0 grading scale) from your prior college coursework.  Some of our online programs have higher GPA requirements for admissions, so be sure to check the program specific page for additional information. 

Students with no prior college coursework applying to online certificate programs will have admission decisions based on your high school academic record. A high school final GPA of 2.5 or higher and an ACT composite score of 17 or higher are required for general admission. (Beginning Fall Semester 2016, high school entry requirements will be changed. Please contact Admissions to learn more.) 

In addition to meeting the GPA requirement you will need to supply the following documents for an admissions decision:

  • Official college transcript from every post secondary institution attended.

If you are transferring into an online certificate or bachelor degree without a completed associate degree, you will need to supply the following documents for an admissions decision:

  • Official college transcript from every post secondary institution attended.
  • Official high school transcript (or GED)
  • ACT/SAT scores will also be required if you have not completed college-level English and algebra.

For students living in MICHIGAN with credits from other MICHIGAN institutions, please check the website for the Office of Transfer and Secondary School Partnerships for how a MACRAO or MTA stamp can streamline your transfer of general education credits.
