About Transfer Credits

We understand that completing your degree in a timely manner is very important to you.  That's why our program is designed so you can transfer as many credits as possible toward earning your B.A. or B.S. degree. 

Students may transfer up to 70 lower-division units from Community Colleges and/or 4 year universities/colleges.  Students may also transfer an unlimited number of upper-division units from 4 year universities/colleges.  However, 30 of the last 39 units must be completed at MSMU in order to qualify for graduation.

MSMU awards credit for the following prior learning:

  • Courses you have already completed at other regionally accredited colleges or universities with a C or better
  • Credit for military and professional training- Joint Services Transcripts (JST)
  • CLEP
  • Advanced Placement
  • CAEL- Credit for prior learning and/or work experience may be available.  Find out if you qualify.

MSMU also has articulation agreements with many community colleges in the regions.  Learn more about these agreements. 

Please note that independent study and credit/no credit courses are not transferable.
