Transfer Guidelines

Franklin values your hard work with a generous and seamless transfer-credit policy that helps you get maximum credit for what you’ve already learned.

  • Credits must be submitted to Franklin from an accredited institution, such as those recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and/or the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Coursework from non-accredited institutions must go through Franklin’s formal, case-by-case review process to determine transferability. The details of this review process are available in Franklin’s Transfer & Articulation Manual.
  • Credit will be accepted for any college course completed with a grade of “D” or higher, including grades of “Pass” and examination credit, subject to GPA and course requirements of the major program.
  • “D” grades are not permitted in major area courses regardless of where the course is taken. 
  • Some majors, such as Accounting, Computer Science and Financial Management, may have rules regarding the transferability of credits taken 10+ years ago.
  • Credit is awarded based on subject matter, prerequisites, level and laboratory requirements. 
  • Transfer credit for Franklin’s degree programs is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

How to Transfer Credit

When you apply for admission, we ask for official copies of your transcripts so we can evaluate all your previous coursework, training, and experience. Using our generous transfer-credit policy and a careful assessment of your prior learning, we’ll help you maximize all possible transfer credit so you can complete your degree as fast and affordably as possible.
