You can transfer up to 90 approved credits, including military and prior learning credits, toward your Bachelor's degree. Talk with a Military Admissions Counselor about maximizing credits from your Joint Services Transcript (JST). As a benefit to you, Ashford University will facilitate the request of all your prior college and military transcripts on your behalf.
Transferring from Community College
Put your community college credits to work at Ashford! Working adults can transfer up to 90 lower-division credits to Ashford, including Associate of Science credits, which means all your past hard work will not be wasted. An Associate of Arts degree may automatically fulfill general education requirements at Ashford. Lower-division work may be equivalent to Ashford's upper-division courses, so you won't have to repeat courses you have already taken.*
The transferability of credits is subject to Ashford University transfer credit policies, and requires the submission of official transcripts. The official transcripts will be evaluated to determine the credits that will officially apply toward an Ashford University degree program.
* Lower division courses which are transferred for upper division Ashford courses do not count toward the 30 upper division credits required for graduation.
