Transfer Credit

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.B.A. degree program. Transfer credit is awarded for courses taken at a regionally accredited college that are equivalent to those taught at Utica College 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 College. Note that we require official transcripts from all colleges you’ve attended, as well as a transcript showing degree awarded.

Shortly after you receive your letter of admission, you will receive an evaluation of your transfer credits from the Registrar’s Office. If you want to review possible credit eligibility ahead of time, use TES® (Transfer Evaluation System).
