The transfer of credits is at the discretion of the receiving institution. University of Phoenix can perform a pre-evaluation using your unofficial transcripts to give you an idea of how your transfer credits may apply to your selected program. Officially, you need to complete the admissions form, provide information about all schools attended, and sign the transfer request form. When all forms and transcripts are received, you’ll know for sure what transfer credits will apply.

Earned community college credits may be transferable to your next level of learning. Speak with your enrollment representative about specific program requirements. Or use our transfer guides to find out how a specific program from one of our college articulation partners will transfer into a specific University of Phoenix degree program.
