Information for University Transfer Students
As the first independently accredited public university created to provide 100% online degree programs, CSU-Global meets the needs of adult learners with a flexible schedule and online format that makes obtaining your degree easy from anywhere there is an internet connection. Students can accomplish their goals while balancing the demands of work, school, and family life.
CSU-Global is committed to accepting as much of your completed transfer credit as possible into our bachelor’s degree completion and master’s degree programs as long as it complies with our policies and transfer credit guidelines. All prior credit will be evaluated through official college transcripts.
Since CSU-Global is a fully online university, students pay the same tuition no matter if you live in Colorado or not. Our Tuition Guarantee also ensures your tuition will never increase as long as you are enrolled in your degree program. A streamlined admissions process means you can start taking courses in the next available term in most cases.

Community College Students
CSU-Global can accept up to 64 credits from community and junior colleges in transfer to a bachelor's degree program. Students who have an associate's degree from a regionally accredited community or junior college are also guaranteed admission to CSU-Global pending a record of good standing from their previous institution.

Alternative Sources of Credit
CSU-Global makes every effort to provide students with opportunities to earn academic credits that contribute toward supporting student learning and accelerated degree completion. Alternative credit options allow adult learners to demonstrate competency—through a combination of knowledge, prior experiences, and independent learning—in order to decrease cost and time when earning a degree.
