CREDIT YOU DESERVE
Transfer over credit you received for previous college classes. The process is simple. Send us your current transcripts and we’ll review coursework to determine how your credits can be transferred into your degree program at CMU Online.
As an undergraduate transfer student, you may be eligible to earn up to $19,500 in scholarships. No additional application is required to be considered.
Prior Learning Credit
It’s possible to be awarded college credit for learning you’ve experienced outside the classroom. Our Prior Learning model looks at competencies rather than course equivalents, providing a vehicle for awarding college credit for the lessons you’ve learned at work, through training, serving in community activities and other life experiences.
With over 1,200 military transfer credit equivalencies, we’re able to evaluate military training and learning opportunities—such as Command and General Staff College or Defense Acquisition University—for possible college credit.
Planned Experiences for Undergraduates
Turn planned life experiences into college credit. Earn between 1 and 30 semester hours of credit for a flexible individualized learning experience you create with input from your academic advisor.
Professional Certifications for Graduate Students
Graduate students have the additional opportunity for credit awards toward a master’s degree from professional certifications received for specific job-skills training. For example, the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification can be applied toward a Master of Science in Administration with a concentration in Human Resources Administration—six credit hours.
