Transferring Your Credits

USciences accepts transfer credits with a grade of C or above from regionally accredited institutions. An official transfer evaluation will be provided at the time of acceptance. View a list of courses already evaluated for transfer using our Transfer Credit Tool

Transfer Agreements and Partnerships

USciences has articulation and affiliation agreements with several schools. These formal agreements or partnerships outline the transfer policies for a specific academic program or degree.  Transfer agreements make the transition easier for students by providing a checklist of what courses should be taken to satisfy degree requirements while attending a community college.

Tuition and Scholarships

Unlike most institutions, we've put an end to the cycle of annual tuition and fee increases. Here, you’ll know the full price to earn that degree from the day you begin—no hidden fees, additional price increases, or surprises during the course of your education. 

Transfer students are automatically considered for an academic merit award at the time of admission. We have both merit and Phi Theta Kappa awards available. Awards are based on previous academic achievement and are renewable for the duration of the student’s estimated time to achieve degree completion.
