Students can transfer up to 60 credits from a 2-year institution and up to 90 credits from a 4-year institution to the online B.S. in Fraud and Financial Crime Investigation degree program. Transfer credit is awarded for courses taken at a regionally accredited college that are equivalent to those taught at Utica University and in which you’ve received a grade of “C” or better. The last 30 credit hours in the bachelor’s program must be earned at Utica University. Note that we require official transcripts from all colleges you’ve attended, as well as a transcript showing degree awarded.
