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).

Awarding transfer credit

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.

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. An evaluation by an outside agency is completed for transcripts for international students and transcripts from outside the US. 

Transfer credit and GPA

For admission and scholarship purposes only, we calculate a transfer GPA based on all courses taken at previous institutions. Once enrolled, we calculate your GPA based on only those grades you earn at Lynn.

Transfer policies

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.
