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 to admissionsforms [at] creighton [dot] edu. The college to which you apply — Arts and Sciences, Heider College of Business, or Nursing — determines how each specific course transfers.
