Transfer With Ease

We work to eliminate the hassle and uncertainty many students face when transferring college credits to another institution. Our advisors work closely with you to develop an academic plan to help you efficiently earn your degree. We have course equivalencies, transfer guides, and articulation agreements with many Michigan colleges and universities to aid in the transition.

We designed our transfer policy 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 available for several Michigan colleges and universities.

We offer:

  • Business Degrees at the bachelor’s and master’s levels
  • Options to accelerate your completion
  • Courses that are taught by practitioner faculty who are experts in their industries
  • Prior Learning Credits which offer the opportunity for students to earn up to 30 undergraduate credits at NO COST!
  • Smaller class sizes, to improve the learning opportunity

Online Transfer Network

In addition to the transfer guides, potential students can visit the Michigan Transfer Network’s website to determine course equivalencies. Please contact Cleary University’s Office of Admissions at 800.686.1883 or via email at with any concerns or questions.


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 38 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.
