Transfer Credits

At Jessup, we know you worked hard for the college credits you’ve already earned. That’s why we allow you to transfer credits from other accredited institutions and apply them toward your chosen online degree program. Our generous transfer policy allows you to complete your degree faster.

After you’ve applied to Jessup, we’ll review your college transcripts to determine which credits will transfer over. One of our enrollment counselors will help you through each step of the way to help make the process as seamless as possible.
