Transferring Credit

Transfer Your Credits to Creighton.

Student talking with a professor

Creighton University makes it easy for admitted students with sufficiently high grades (C or higher) earned at an accredited post-secondary institution to transfer credit.

The Credit-Transference Process

To initiate the credit-transference process, please send all of your official college and/or university transcripts electronically. The college to which you apply — Arts and Sciences, Heider College of Business, or Nursing — determines how each specific course transfers. For information about converting AP and IB exam scores into Creighton credit, please visit our advanced placement page.

A maximum of 80 credit hours can be transferred toward a Creighton degree. To graduate from Creighton, you must complete at least 48 credit hours at Creighton.

Browse below to learn about each college’s transference process. We encourage you to get in touch with the transfer counselor for your intended college.

College of Arts and Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences reviews transfer credits after the student is accepted to Creighton. For more information, please get in touch with our Assistant Dean, Gerry Kuhlman:

  • Email: gkuhlman [at] creighton [dot] edu
  • Phone:  402.280.4012

Heider College of Business

The credit-transference evaluation occurs during the college application review process for the Heider College of Business. For more information, please get in touch with our Assistant Dean, Charisse Williams:

  • Email: cwilliams [at] creighton [dot] edu
  • Phone: 402.280.2344

College of Nursing

Due to our direct-entry bachelor’s of science in nursing program, our traditional BSN nursing program is generally full with incoming freshmen; therefore, we do not have space for incoming transfer students. We offer a one-year accelerated bachelor’s of science in nursing (ANC) program for students who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree in another discipline. If you’d like more information about the accelerated Nursing program, please email our recruitment team in the College of Nursing at nursing [at] creighton [dot] edu.
