- Transfer Credits
Students who wish to complete a bachelor's degree may have the opportunity to apply college credits toward their degree, provided they were earned at regionally or professionally accredited educational institutions. RMU holds transfer agreements with most two-year educational institutions.
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of individual tests for various college-level courses. The tests provide the opportunity to gain college credit for knowledge acquired through independent study. If you are interested in taking a CLEP examination, speak with an admissions counselor to make sure you are taking the correct examination in order for credit to be applied toward your degree program.
