Are you looking to further your education at a college or university but don’t like where you’re currently attending? Did you go to a community college for an associate’s degree and now want to move forward with a bachelor’s degree? One of the hardest parts of transferring schools is transferring credits. You don’t want your hard work wasted with credits that don’t transfer. We don’t want your hard work to go to waste, either! If you’re considering attending Athena University but are worried about the credit transfer process, here’s what you should know.
Yes! Athena University accepts most credits from accredited universities. In fact, we can accept up to 90 credits, depending on previous coursework. Think of it this way, if you’ve already taken Accounting I, why should you have to take it again? If the curriculum from the course you’ve already taken is similar to what we offer at Athena University, we accept the credits you’ve earned and put you one step closer to graduation.
When deciding which credits to accept, we look at the credits you’ve already earned course by course. If the course you took at an accredited university is similar to what we offer at Athena, we accept the credit. We understand the frustration of having to retake classes, which is why we evaluate each course to make sure you get the credit for courses that are similar enough to Athena University’s curriculum so you don’t have to take them again.
We accept up to 90 credits for our Bachelor of Business Administration program. Our program only requires 120 credits to graduate, which means we can take up to 75% of credits needed to graduate from Athena University with a Bachelor’s degree. While we do not guarantee that every credit will transfer, we evaluate each credit earned, course by course, to determine which credits transfer and which ones don’t.
If you have your associate’s degree, your credit transfers the same way. Associate’s degrees usually average around 60 credits transferred to Athena University, depending on the degree. If you chose an associate’s degree closely related to Athena University’s business program, it is possible that more than 60 credits can be transferred. For example, if you earned more than 60 credits for your associate’s degree and some courses you previously took are similar to what we offer, we can transfer more than 60 credits (up to 90) to match the extra coursework you’ve worked hard to complete.
We do accept credits from an international school, however there are a few extra steps you have to take. If you’re an international student, you’ll have to send your university transcript to an evaluation agency that will determine if the courses you took are equivalent to a university in the United States. We can also send the transcripts for you, but you’ll have to pay the fee. Once the coursework is evaluated, the same credit transfer policies apply! We can accept up to 90 credits of equivalent coursework from your previous university, depending on the transcript evaluation.
