Transfer Credit Policy

In the transfer credit category, students may fill degree requirements using transfer credits earned for courses taken at another college or university. The maximum number of semester credits in this category that may be applied toward the MBA is 9 credits; the maximum number that may applied toward the BBA ranges up to 90 (depending on the program selected) credits. The maximum number of credits applied to an ABA is 41 credits. Credit in this category does not include a grade and does not count in the student’s grade point average or toward the Cleary University residency requirement.

Students who have received college credit with a grade of “C” or better (“B” or better for graduate-level courses and earned within seven years) from a college or university accredited by a regional accrediting body such as the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, may transfer these credits to Cleary. Credit for courses from a non-accredited, post-secondary institution will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and credit may be given if the course content and academic standards of the institution meet the requirements of Cleary University.

Cleary University’s transfer policy is designed to support not only the transfer student from a community college or similar two-year institution, but also those students who have attended other four-year institutions. Course equivalency guides are prepared for many Michigan colleges and universities.
