Credit Transfer

College Credit for Your Experience

Learn how you can make your time at Globe University more efficient by transferring credits and getting credit for work experience.

At Globe University, we recognize that students have knowledge when they come to our school. We grant college credit toward your degree or certificate for demonstrated completion of an educational or professional experience equivalent to a course in your program. 

There are no charges or fees for evaluating your experience or for the credit—it is one way we help you achieve your goals as efficiently as possible.

Your degree may be closer than you think. If you are interested in applying for credit for experience, please contact your campus or our online division for information about the application process:
