Transfer Credit


Our counselors are always willing to schedule individual appointments to review your transcripts. Please look at our transfer counselor page to contact your admissions counselor.


Transfer Agreements

We have several articulation agreements, and accept transfer credits from several accredited colleges. A list of most popularly-transferred credits can be found on our Registrar's website. If you do not see your school listed, remember: these are not the only schools from which we accept credit.

You are encouraged to bring in your transcripts, because we prefer to review credit transfer on a case-by-case basis.



Other Transfer Credits:


Prior Learning Assessment

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is a process used to earn college credit for learning that has been acquired outside of the traditional classroom.


CLEP (College Level Examination Program)

CLEP provides the learner the opportunity to demonstrate college-level learning by taking nationally standardized examinations that assess the knowledge and skills taught in college-level courses. More than 30 CLEP tests are available and are administered regularly at local sites.


Advanced Placement Credit

High school students who successfully complete the College Board Advanced Placement examinations for college credit should have their official score reports sent to the University of Saint Francis.


Veterans Credit

Veterans who qualify under the G.I. Bill of Rights may enroll at the university. Two semester hours of credit in physical education will be granted to veterans honorably discharged after six months of service. Veterans can also submit official copies of military transcripts (e.g. AARTS or College of the Air Force) for evaluation.


Fort Wayne Higher Education Consortium

The Fort Wayne Higher Education Consortium is a group of seven area institutions: Huntington College, Indiana Institute of Technology, Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne, Ivy Tech State College, Manchester College, and the University of Saint Francis. The Consortium allows University of Saint Francis students to enroll in a regularly offered course during a fall or spring semester at any other Consortium school.

The credit transfer policy is dependent on the school’s course description, and the posted descriptions are not always updated online, even if the course itself is different. If you are unsure whether or not you’ll get credit from a certain course, bring a course syllabus to your individual appointment.
