CalSouthern Welcomes Your Transfer Credits!

Have you taken courses from other universities, community colleges or vocational schools without completing your degree? At CalSouthern, we welcome your transfer credits. We will accept the maximum number of course credits appropriate to your degree program to help reduce the time and cost required for you to earn your degree.

And, since CalSouthern is regionally accredited, its courses and degrees are readily accepted in transfer to other colleges and universities. However, acceptance is always at the discretion of the receiving institution, so it is a good idea to check with the registrar’s office of the institution to which you intend to transfer CalSouthern academic credits or degrees.

Here are a few guidelines for transferring academic credits to CalSouthern:

  • Transcripts - Must be sent directly from the Registrar of your prior colleges or universities to the Registrar at CalSouthern for review. Only official transcripts will be evaluated.

  • Accepting Transfer Credits - California Southern University may accept semester credits in transfer toward degree programs for coursework completed at appropriately accredited postsecondary institutions. Appropriately accredited postsecondary institutions are defined as those accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education, or by an accrediting agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or, for non-United States institutions, an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
