  1. Rasmussen College reserves the right to accept or deny credits according to policies outlined in the course catalog. Tuition estimates are for qualified individuals transferring in more than 60 credits. Actual time to completion will be based upon transfer evaluation and eligibility. Standard program pricing reflects part-time Bachelor’s degree pricing.

When I realized I could transfer my credits and finish my degree in a year-and-a-half, I knew I could accomplish my goals. My degree helped me get my foot in the door to advance my career.

What Is a Transfer Student?

We define a transfer student as anyone who’s previously earned college credit from an accredited two- or four-year college/university after graduating from high school.

A student enrolling to Rasmussen College with college credit earned while attending high school is not considered a transfer student, but, rather, a new, incoming student.

Do You Have Potential Transfer Credits? Send Them Over!

National Student Clearinghouse

If you have potential transfer credits, the coursework will first need to be reviewed. In order to get coursework reviewed, you must request that official transcripts be sent directly to Rasmussen College. You will receive email notifications alerting you when your transcripts are received and credits post to your account.

It is your responsibility to ensure that all official transcripts have been received by the College. Additional evaluations may apply.

Many colleges work with the National Student Clearinghouse, a secure 24/7 online order system, to help you order and process transcript requests. Click on the button below if you're ready to request your transcript.

Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Every institution is different and has their own process for requesting and sending transcripts. If you are having trouble finding your school or transcript on the National Student Clearinghouse website, we recommend contacting your previous school directly for more information. Or, you can contact one of our admissions advisors to walk you through how to request your transcript and answer any other transfer policy questions you may have.

Save with Flex Choice® Learning Options

Flex Choice adds flexibility to your schedule and is a more affordable way to receive credit by demonstrating what you know and can do.

Credit for Prior Learning

Your job and life experiences count with us. Past college coursework, military transcripts, course waivers and industry certifications all maximize your credits and reduce overall costs. To learn more about credit for prior learning and transfer credits, contact an admissions advisor.

Self-Directed Assessments

With Flex Choice, you can get credit for what you already know. These self-directed, interactive assessments are taken independently. If you prefer, you can get one-on-one guidance from an academic coach beforehand, and support materials are also provided to help you brush up. At $99 per assessment, you’ll save money and time.

Flex Choice was the differentiation for me when I was looking at a number of different colleges. That was one of the big appeals. Flexibility is huge when your time for school is limited to after work and on the weekends.
