Can international students transfer credits?

Your previous education at eligible higher-learning institutions can count for credit at Everest matter how much time has passed since you earned those credits.

Your prior credits must be compatible with the degree program you're pursuing at Everest. We can accept up to 24 previous college credits. We can help you sort through your college transcripts to find out what courses can transfer.

In our student catalog, and related disclosure documents, we explain to prospective students that there is no guarantee credits can be transferred. Acceptance of any institution's credits is at the sole discretion of the receiving institution.

Even so, upon request we work with students to help them transfer credits and have many students who have successfully transferred credits to other institutions.

The main "rule" is that credit transfer is wholly at the discretion of the "transfer to" institution. Schools establish guidelines as to the number, subject matter, age, division level and satisfaction of programmatic pre-requisites of previously earned academic credits.

We believe the high quality of our educational standards and the recognition of our accrediting agency by the U.S. Department of Education should be the determining factors in transfer credits, but that is not always the case.

Are tuition and fees different for international students?

At Everest, international students pay the same tuition and fees as domestic students. The cost of your education depends on the number of credit hours you take each quarter and the amount of aid you receive.

After admission to Everest, but before registering for classes each quarter or mini-term, you must make arrangements to cover the cost of tuition, books and fees. You can pay by check, by credit card or you can contact our Student Finance Officers for details on a wide range of financing alternatives.
