Transfer Students

Each year Carlos Albizu University (CAU) welcomes transfer students from colleges and other higher educational institutions. CAU accepts into its programs of study students who transfer from postsecondary institutions which are accredited by a regional or national accrediting association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Carlos Albizu University recognizes that the needs of transfer students may differ from those of first-year students.  As a transfer student, we will work with you to make the transition to the University as seamless as possible. Upon receipt of your application for admission and official academic transcripts from all colleges or universities of higher education attended, your application will be reviewed by the Program faculty.

If you are an applicant to a CAU undergraduate program and have credits earned from other accredited colleges and universities, CAU will allow you to transfer up to a maximum of 90 credits toward your degree program of choice. Upon receipt of your application for admission and official academic transcripts, the Program Director will evaluate your transcript(s) and will inform the Admissions Office of the credits accepted for transfer. High school students that completed Advanced Placement courses must submit   to the Office of Admissions their College Board transcripts with the application.    

 As an applicant to a graduate program at Carlos Albizu University, you may request the transfer of courses from other accredited colleges and universities which meet the following criteria:

  • Completed with a grade of “A” or “B”
  • Completed within five (5) years prior to the date of application to the Program
  • Classified as non-clinical courses
  • Approval of the academic program director of courses requested for transfer up to the maximum allowable as listed in the CAU Catalog
  • Payment of transfer of credits fee as  noted in the Tuition and Fees section  the CAU Catalog

 Note:  There is no time limit for credits from completed degrees at CAU or other accredited institutions.

We encourage you to consider CAU as your next academic home and invite you to learn more about our  faculty and academic  programs.
