Columbia Southern University is committed to providing students the greatest opportunity to apply previously earned credit toward their chosen degree program.

CSU allows transfer of credit hours for prior academic credits, training, and relevant professional licenses and certifications.  Up to 75 percent of undergraduate courses and 50 percent of graduate courses can be transferred into your degree program.

Transfer Credit Acceptance

The acceptance of transfer credits between academic institutions lies within the discretion of the receiving college or university. Credits earned at Columbia Southern University may or may not be accepted by another institution depending upon its own programs, policies, and regulations.

CSU encourages students to refer to the Transfer Credit Policy to learn more about transfer credit opportunities.


Students who have earned military credit or have undergone testing through programs like the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) may have credits that can be transferred toward their degree program through CSU’s institutional Crosswalks.
