Transfer your credits

Your bachelor’s degree could be 70% complete – transfer up to 28 classes to Strayer and finish what you started.

Read important information regarding eligibility. The transfer credits policy doesn’t apply to associate or certificate programs or Jack Welch Management Institute MBA.

Credit granted does not apply toward Strayer University residency requirements. View the residency requirements and maximum number of prior learning credits allowed for your program. Developmental courses taken at another institution do not fulfill credit or placement requirements at Strayer University. Undergraduate students must fulfill placement requirements as outlined in the University catalog. Students in residence at Strayer University who choose to take a course at another institution in order to transfer the course into their program at Strayer University are required to get pre-approval from the Campus Dean. All courses are subject to Strayer University policies, including a ten-year limitation on courses in accounting and computer-related areas.

Transfer credits Q & A

Find answers to common transfer-related questions.

You can enroll all the way up to the add/drop period, one week after the start of classes.

If possible, we can order your transcripts for you after you complete a transcript request form. Otherwise, request your transcripts directly and have them sent to registrar@strayer.edu or P.O. BOX 211625, Dallas TX 75211.

The helpful folks at our Registrar’s Office will process your transcripts. The moment we’ve opened your transcript, you’ll receive a notification that it’s under review. After that, it should take about 3–5 business days to be posted on iCampus. There, you’ll be able to see what transferred.

If you’re a graduate student, you’ll need to submit your transcripts before the quarter ends. If you’re transferring as an undergrad, plan to submit as early as possible, so you don’t wind up having to retake classes.

That depends on your program. You can transfer up to 126 credits into an undergraduate program or up to 18 credits into a graduate program.

Credits must be from accredited universities and your transcripts must be evaluated by the registrar.
