Transfer & Community College Students

We welcome students with transfer credits from regionally and programmatically accredited institutions. CPS works closely with many community colleges to help create a road map of the transfer process for students. Our programs are designed to enable a seamless transfer of credits into a baccalaureate degree program.

84% of our bachelor's degree alumni transferred in credits.

Surveys conducted by AACC indicate that at least 50% and perhaps as many as 80% of all incoming community college students seek to transfer and earn a bachelor’s degree.
