Transfer credits

Transfer credit evaluations

Transfer credit is awarded for courses successfully completed at a regionally accredited institution or an institution whose accrediting organization is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Official transcripts from each institution attended must be submitted to the Office of Admission in order to complete a formal transfer evaluation. Once this process is complete, you'll receive notification of the number of credits that will transfer to Lynn University.
Preliminary evaluations can be performed on unofficial transcripts. A final decision is made once official documents have been received and reviewed. 

Transfer evaluation system

To make your transition to Lynn University as easy and seamless as possible, use the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) to locate course descriptions and equivalences from previous institutions. If your institution isn't listed, contact the transfer office for assistance.

Transfer credit and GPA

Although credits transfer from other institutions, grades do not. Transfer courses are listed on the transcript with a grade of "T." A student's Lynn grade point average (GPA) is based solely on courses completed at Lynn University.

Undergraduate Student Transfer Policy

Any course that was successfully completed at another institution may be accepted at Lynn University once a transfer credit evaluation is completed and equivalencies are determined. All undergraduate students must complete a total of 30 credits at Lynn in order to receive a Lynn University degree. 

Community College Transfer Policy

Lynn will accept all credits earned for students transferring with an associate degree from an accredited 2-year institution, including all Florida public state and community colleges.

Articulation agreements

Lynn will match all coursework completed at institutions with which there is an articulation agreement. Lynn University has articulation agreements with all Florida community colleges.
