Transferring Credit

At Regis, we understand that pursuing higher education is an investment of both time and resources, which is why we have options to maximize your credit and experience.  As a bachelor’s degree student, you may be able to transfer up to 87 credits toward your degree program.

College Credit

Regis University accepts transfer students and transfers credit in many different ways. Whether you have earned your associate degree, completed coursework at other colleges or organizations, or would like to receive credit for military service or courses completed through your employer, we can help. If you have prior college credit, you may be closer than you realize to achieving your educational goal. Credits must be earned at a regionally accredited institution, and an admissions counselor can evaluate your transcripts to see which credits apply to your program of interest.
