3 Easy Steps to Transfer Credits

  1. Simply contact each prior college or university you attended and request that an official transcript (reflecting course credits earned) be sent directly to the Everest registrar.
  2. Our registrar will review your previous classes and enter the information into an internal student database.
  3. Your student services coordinator will then contact you with the total number of credits you are able to transfer. These results will be noted in your program audit sheet.

Credit transfer policy

Credit will be accepted only for courses that are compatible with the student’s program of study at the university and for courses in which a grade of “C” or higher was earned.

Students must complete at least 25 percent of all program hours in residence. Students wishing to transfer credits must have official transcripts mailed directly to the Office of the Registrar. Transcripts must be received prior to the end of the first term of enrollment. Transcripts received after the end of the first term may be considered at the discretion of the AVP College Registrar

A student's ability to transfer credits from Everest to another institution is dictated by a number of factors. In student catalog and related disclosure documents, we explain to prospective students that there is no guarantee EUO 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 to other institutions. Of course, those who are able to progress from the associate to bachelor's level at EUO will have absolutely no problems with credit transfer issues.

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. EUO participates in processes to streamline credit transfer through agreements with individual institutions.

However, no institution, including EUO, can compel another institution to accept credits students may wish to transfer. 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.
