School information has been collected from student surveys. If you are interested in taking our courses for college credits, we suggest contacting your school’s registrar or advisor to confirm if the transfer credits can be pre-approved for your degree program. Our credits are typically accepted as General Education transfer credits (as a baseline), but they’re also accepted toward specific majors or degree programs on a case by case basis.
