You may be able to transfer your credits from another school into your Capella degree program.
There are three steps to finding out if your previous university credits will apply to your Capella program:
Once you have completed the Capella admissions application – including your education history – you can start sending your transcripts to us. Capella evaluates each transcript for transfer credit as it arrives.
Yes. If your previous institution allows third-party requests, we will be able to request them on your behalf. You can choose this option as part of your application to Capella.
Generally, we can accept transfer credits from other regionally accredited institutions and from other programs on a case-by-case basis.
Each of our programs has a different limit to how many transfer credits can be applied.
Once we have received your transcripts, you can expect to see evaluations within seven business days.
You can order your official transcript from www.parchment.com, our secure transcript request service. If you don’t already have an account with this service, you’ll be able to set up a new one for free.
