*This policy accounts for graduates that transfer from a diploma to a related degree (ex. Business – BBA). College graduates transferring into an unrelated degree program will receive a limited amount of transfer credit.

In general, Diploma-to-Degree students studying full-time (15 credits per term) will take anywhere from two to five terms to graduate with a three-year Bachelor’s degree, and four to seven terms to graduate with a four-year Bachelor’s degree. The maximum number of transfer credits for the Bachelor of Science degree is 36. Transfer credit ultimately depends on grades, length of diploma and field of study. We also have exceptional pathway agreements with numerous colleges offering transfer credit that goes beyond the standard Block Credit Policy.

Block Credit Policy provides maximum recognition for your prior learning experiences depending on grades, length of diploma and field of study. We also have exceptional pathway agreements with numerous colleges offering transfer credit that goes beyond the standard Block Credit Policy.
