Transferring from Another College or University

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.

California Community Colleges
California community college students can easily transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree. Grand Canyon University accepts courses that are part of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) to fulfill GCU general education requirements per transfer policies.
