Transferring Credits Saves Time & Money

Save time and money on your Capella degree when you transfer credits from regionally accredited or internationally recognized institutions.

Capella students enjoy a shorter and more affordable route to graduation through credit transfer. Approximately 75% of bachelor's students receive transfer credit toward their program, with half of them bringing in more than 50 credits. Similarly, 70% of doctoral students use credit transfer to save time and money on their program. Except in the case of a combined degree, your master’s program is unable to accept transfer credits from your bachelor’s.
