Transfer of Credit

At Grand View, we keep our transfer process simple and our transfer policies friendly. Normally all college parallel credits from accredited institutions are accepted. We accept up to 66 semester hours of transfer credit from junior/community colleges.

Grand View also awards credit for off-campus educational programs that have been evaluated by:

The American Council on Education (ACE)
The Armed Services
The Association of Executive and Administrative Professionals (AEAP)
The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA)
The Insurance Institute of America
The Life Management Institute (LOMA)

In addition, you may earn college credit through the successful completion of:

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests
DSST Exams
Proficiency Examination Program (PEP) tests
Grand View departmental exams
Experiential learning (life experience) portfolios

Up to 32 hours of credit by examination and/or portfolio assessment may be counted toward the Grand View baccalaureate degree.

The Associate in Arts degree (AA) satisfies the Grand View University General Education Core requirements for the baccalaureate degree except for the composition and quantitative reasoning courses (unless fulfilled by transfer coursework), Core Seminars II and III, and the required number of outcome iterations (number determined by class status on entry to the University as defined above).  See the University Catalog for details.
