Eligibility & Transfer Credit

Please review these guidelines to determine your eligibility for transfer admission to CEPRES International University. Note that the terms high school and secondary school are used interchangeably.


  • Students who have taken college courses in an associate or bachelor’s degree program after finishing high school must apply for transfer admission.
  • Transfer courses must be from an accredited degree-granting institution; courses from vocational, technical, performance, or professional programs are not accepted.
  • Students must possess a high school diploma, the state equivalent of a high school diploma, or a GED to enroll at CEPRES International University.
  • Students who are concurrently enrolled in high school and college programs should apply for first-year admission.
  • Students who have already obtained a bachelor’s degree are ineligible for undergraduate admission. Those interested in graduate programs should visit the Graduate Admissions website.

Transfer Credit

Transfer credit is evaluated and awarded by the Office of the University Registrar in accordance with Faculty Senate policy. CEPRES International University does not have formal articulation agreements with other institutions, but a course generally receives transfer credit if it meets the following criteria:

  • It is completed at an accredited institution.
  • It closely aligns with courses offered at CEPRES International University.
  • It is completed with a grade of C- or better.
  • It does not duplicate, overlap, or regress previous coursework.

Incoming transfer students can transfer a maximum of 90 quarter units (approximately two years of full-time college study) to CEPRES International University, regardless of the number of units earned at previous institutions. While transfer students can apply with more than two years of coursework from another institution, they must complete at least two years of full-time enrollment at CEPRES International University to obtain a bachelor’s degree from the university.

The final determination of the transferability of specific courses is made by the Registrar’s Office after students are admitted.
