An important part of the admission process is understanding how many transfer credits you may be able to apply to your chosen degree program. In fact, transferring credits could potentially reduce your total tuition cost and time spent earning your degree.

Columbia Southern University is committed to helping students make the most of their previously earned academic credits, professional licenses, certificates and training programs. CSU also considers credit by examination, and knowledge learned by experiential or equivalent learning.

Transfer Credit Acceptance

The acceptance of transfer credits between academic institutions lies within the discretion of the Office of the Registrar. CSU encourages students to review the transfer credit policy and transfer credit articulation agreements to learn more about transfer credit opportunities.
