Lopes Credit Evaluation
The Lopes Credit Evaluation helps you find out exactly how many credits will transfer to GCU for your chosen degree. A Lopes specialist will evaluate your transcripts and help you with the transfer process every step of the way.
Need coursework to transfer to another university or complete a degree? Need to satisfy prerequisite requirements? Individual courses give you an opportunity to earn college credit to complete a program or study a specific content area.
GCU will review courses completed at another community college or university, and credit earned at these institutions may be applied to a degree program offered at GCU based on our transfer policies.
The GCU Transfer Center has formed Articulation Agreements with a number of institutions, matching the coursework to maximize the use of resources, minimize duplicate coursework and help you make a smooth transition when transferring colleges to GCU. Below is a list of schools with which we currently have Articulation Agreements.
If you are currently or planning on attending one of these institutions, please work directly with your university counselor, who will guide you into the correct program at GCU.
GCU will still evaluate and award credit for institutions not listed below based on our transfer policies. You can have your unofficial transcript evaluated and, in as few as 24 hours, a university counselor will contact you with an estimated number of credits earned, an anticipated graduation date and preliminary schedule.
