The University of Mary accepts credits earned at institutions accredited by agencies recognized by the US Department of Education for the level of credit awarded, provided that such credits have been earned through university-level courses appropriate to the student’s degree program at the University of Mary. Credits from foreign or professional schools will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Office of the Registrar in consultation with the Office of Academic Affairs and/or the Academic Dean responsible for the student’s declared program of study.

Students are not at liberty to selectively transfer courses. Transfer credit is only granted for courses in which a grade of “C-” or better was earned, except where an articulation agreement exists between the credit awarding institution and the University of Mary. Remedial or developmental courses are not considered college-level and do not transfer. The university will accept a maximum of 92 undergraduate credits in transfer from all previous colleges attended. Only 62 credits can come from two-year institutions.

In addition to accepting courses from accredited institutions, the university accepts credits for some DSST, CLEP, and AP exams. See the fact sheets below for information on which tests are accepted and what credit will be granted based on the appropriate score level.

If you have questions about a potential transfer option not listed here, please contact us at 701-355-8080 or [email protected].
