CSU recognizes that students pursue education in a variety of institutional settings to meet educational goals. Transfer credit decisions are made at the discretion of each institution and in accordance with its academic mission and transfer credit policies. It is, therefore, recommended that students seek prior approval of CSU credits for purposes related to transferability of credit, credentialing, tuition reimbursement, or other academic and professional reasons.

Columbia Southern University has articulation agreements with other institutions of higher learning. These articulations may provide for the acceptance of credits for transferability. CSU degrees may be accepted by other universities and colleges as entry into other programs.
