Online College Transfer Credits

Reach Your Education Goals Faster

Ashworth College accepts eligible transfer credits from previously attended colleges and universities for candidates in our associate, bachelor's degree and master's degree programs. Whether you took online college courses for credit or attended a traditional brick-and-mortar school, our Registrar can evaluate your credits and let you know what will apply toward your degree. You may also be eligible for work and life experience credit. Receiving credit for what you already know saves time and money.

We make it easy to transfer Ashworth College undergraduate certificate and associate degree credits into our bachelor's degree programs. As an associate degree program graduate, you may only have as few as 60 credit hours remaining to complete to earn your bachelor's degree.
