Academic credits are those earned by completing college-level courses through a institution of higher learning with regional and/or national accreditation, including a military school or sponsored military program.
To earn traditional transfer credit at APU, your graduate-level course(s) must:
Have a final grade of B or higher (or have a Pass/Satisfactory grade that is equivalent to a final grade of B or higher indicated by the issuing university)
Earned within the last 10 years.
Not have been used to complete an undergraduate degree.
Not be internship and practicum course work.
Note: Credits from institutions that operate on a quarter system are converted into semester hours by dividing quarter hours by 1.5.
If you are a graduate student with academic credits earned at another college or university, you should complete a transfer credit evaluation request after enrolling at APU.
The Transfer Equivalency Database (we call it TED for short) is designed to give you a general idea of how your previous academic courses could be counted as transfer credits toward your APU degree.
This database houses thousands of transfer credit equivalencies from accredited universities. It is designed to be used as an unofficial guide to potential credit award. Your previously earned credit will be officially reviewed only after you are admitted to the university and you submit a Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) request.
Follow the easy prompts below to get started. If you need assistance using this database, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need help or have questions, our transfer credit staff is available and will guide you through the process step by step.
