Reduce the time and cost of finishing your degree by maximizing your transfer credits. Many students save substantially by transferring previous academic coursework into their Capella program. Coursework completed at an institution accredited by a U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting agency or an internationally recognized institution will be considered, regardless of how long ago they were earned. With your permission, we will request your transcripts on your behalf and pay any associated fees.
