Transferring Credits

Transfer College Credits

GCU generally accepts courses from accredited institutions. Whether you attended a community college or a university, we make it easy to submit your transcripts and find out how many previous credits may count toward your degree.

Lifelong Learning Assessment (LLA)

If you’ve worked in the field or industry of your degree path, GCU’s Lifelong Assessment (LLA) allows qualified students to earn up to eight general education or elective credits based on previous work and life experiences.

National Exams

National exams such as the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) offer a great way for you to get credits for what you know. You may be able to earn up to 30 GCU transfer credits toward your bachelor’s degree through these tests.

Certificates and Credit Evaluations

Qualifying certificates and credit evaluations such as the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT®) allow you to gain credits for your professional learning experiences. Turn your previous work experience including military training into potential college credits.

Admissions at GCU

All students must submit either acceptable high school or college transcripts to be considered for full admission into the university. If students cannot meet the GPA requirements with their transcripts but have test scores or a college-GPA that meets admission requirements, students may be eligible for full admission.

Accreditation

Grand Canyon University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, an institutional accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The Higher Learning Commission was established in 1895 as an accreditor of post-secondary degree granting institutions in the North Central region, totaling 19 states. The HLC and its predecessor have accredited GCU continually since 1968.
