How to Transfer Credits to Ashworth College

We’re guessing this is you: Former college student who didn’t earn your degree, but wants to pick up where you left off and finish things up as quickly as possible.

If that’s in the right ballpark, then you’re probably wondering what you can do with those credits you already have. The good news is, you most likely don’t need to start from scratch, and you shouldn’t.

If you’re looking to make the plunge to finish off that degree that eludes you–you definitely don’t want to leave your earned credits behind. Those credits in your pocket can translate to time and money saved. And the more credits that transfer over, the more likely you are to earn your bachelor’s degree.

But we’ll say it: Transferring your college credits can be a real pain in the butt. Many four-year colleges have a maximum number of transfer credits they will allow, and some even have a minimum. There are minimum grade requirements, equivalency numbers, expiration dates, electives and more; it gets messy fast.

BUT… transferring college credits doesn’t have to be a pain, and that’s where Ashworth College comes in.

A provider of flexible and affordable online education, Ashworth College knows how hard it can be to transfer credits from one educational institution to another. That’s why Ashworth makes transferring college credits easy. Ashworth College accepts transfer credits for candidates for Associate'sBachelor's and Master's Degree programs.

Recently, when Heritage College announced the closure of all 10 of its campuses, Ashworth knew it had to step in to fill the void. Knowing how difficult it is to transfer credits from healthcare and vet tech programs, Ashworth made special accommodations to accept eligible transfer students from Heritage College. Ashworth is also here for displaced students from other shuttered institutions.

To transfer your college credits to Ashworth College, here’s what you need to do:

1. Call Ashworth College’s admissions department or enroll online

The first thing you’ll need to do is enroll in your degree program of choice with Ashworth College. To do this, you can give admissions a call at 1-800-957-5412 or simply enroll online.

2. Obtain and submit an official transcript

Have your previous school mail in your transcript, download a transcript request form from the Ashworth College Student Portal or forward an electronic copy of your transcript to the Ashworth College Registrar at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can even fax it to 770-729-8578.

Keep in mind, Ashworth only accepts college transfer credits from accredited schools, meaning an institution that meets a set of established standards. If you’re not sure, call the university or college where you earned your credits and ask, or look the school up on the U.S. Department of Education’s database.

The sooner you get your transcript in, the faster Ashworth’s team can apply your eligible transfer credits to your program.

You can also mail your transcript to this address:

Ashworth College
Attn: Transcripts
6625 The Corners Parkway, Suite 500
Norcross, GA 30092

Ashworth’s registrar will evaluate your transcript and provide you with access to take any exams that you are eligible for. These include Life/Work exams, which allow you to transfer in credit for knowledge you’ve accumulated through employment or life experience. Associate’s degree students are eligible for up to five transferrable credits, while Bachelor’s degree students will be eligible for up to 10.

If this applies to you, you will be directed to download a form and send it in once you are enrolled.

How many credits transfer in?

It depends! But Ashworth College students must take at least 25 percent of your program of study to graduate. That means you can transfer up to 75% of credit toward a degree program.

Those students going for a Master’s degree must take 50 percent of the program and cannot transfer in any Life/Work exams. 

3. Complete your program!

Once you are enrolled, it’s up to you to finish your degree, online, at your own pace.

Your program costs will vary based on how many courses you need to finish and which payment plan you choose. Ashworth College is flexible and convenient, and has monthly tuition options available to fit your budget and pay as you go. Transferring the college credits you have already earned can make your education even more affordable.

Enroll online or call now to get started: 1-800-957-5412.
