Transferring Your Credits
If you have already earned an associate’s degree from another institution, then you have met all of the requirements for our general education core curriculum.
If you are transferring to Bellevue University without an associate’s degree, you will need to complete all of the general education requirements that aren’t already met. Bellevue University has articulation agreements with several U.S. colleges and institutions and with universities abroad. These agreements mean you can transfer directly to Bellevue University to complete your bachelor's degree. To see how credits transfer, please visit the Transfer Credit Guide.
If you’re transferring to Bellevue University with a bachelor’s degree, you will only need to complete your major-specific courses.
You don’t have to figure all of this out on your own! Your enrollment counselor will meet with you to discuss your academic history and to complete an evaluation of your previously earned credits to see which requirements you have met and those that you have yet to complete.
88%* of Bellevue University's 2013-14 graduates transferred previously earned college credit to help complete their bachelor's degree.
Here you can explore all of the current articulation agreements that we hold with other U.S. colleges and select institutions abroad. These agreements allow all graduating students with transfer courses or degrees in technical, career, or liberal arts fields to transfer into one of our bachelor’s degree programs.
If you have already earned an associate’s or bachelor’s degree from another institution, then all credits earned from that institution at the time of that degree’s completion will be accepted.
