Albertus Magnus College will accept transfer credits from any regionally accredited two or four year college. (Coursework must be completed with a minimum grade of C or better.) In order to have your transcripts evaluated, you must have official transcripts sent from that institution to the Office of Continuing Education. Once you have become a matriculated student in our Accelerated Degree Program, the Registrar will evaluate the transcripts and assign credit accordingly. Here are some basic guidelines:
A maximum of 90 credits is transferable toward a Bachelor degree from an accredited four-year college for work done satisfactorily (grade C or better).
A maximum of 64 credits (grade C or better) is transferable toward a Bachelor degree from junior and community colleges.
A maximum of 39 credits (grade C or better) is transferable toward an Associate degree.
Students may receive credit for life experience through CLEP and / or DANTES examinations, challenge exams, or portfolios. Most life experience credit is given through the examination option. The Registrar's Office maintains guidelines on specific test acceptance and scoring proficiency. Information about the CLEP and DANTES can be obtained by making an appointment with an academic coordinator - call 203.773.8505.
