Earn Your Degree Faster and For Less

CSU Global accepts a variety of alternative credit options that enable students to earn their degree quickly and at reduced cost. Alternative credit options allow you to demonstrate competency, knowledge, prior experience, and independent learning in a particular subject area. Take advantage of your previous skills and experiences to transfer in credit toward your academic goals.

Alternative transfer credits can be used in addition to community college transfer credits, but cannot exceed the overall transfer credit maximum. Alternative credits are only available for undergraduate students. There are no alternative credit options for graduate students.

Alternative credit options include prior learning assessments, credit by exam, and international credit transfers.
