Will my credits from Harrison College transfer to other colleges?
While the curriculum of Harrison College is designed for students who want to pursue a career-focused education and complete their degree in as little time as possible, credit transfer opportunities are available. Transferring credits from Harrison College to another institution is not guaranteed, as it is up to the receiving institution to decide if they will accept Harrison College’s credits. Check with a Program Specialist at the other school to find out if they accept our credits and then we will be happy to send them your transcript or other required documentation.
Will Harrison College accept credits previously earned by another institution?
Harrison College does consider credits for transfer from other accredited colleges. Decisions to accept incoming credits to Harrison College from another school are made by the Campus President at your local Harrison campus. Information regarding these previously earned credits should be shared with your Program Specialist when inquiring about Harrison College. Additionally, if your previous credits do not meet Harrison qualification guidelines, you may attempt to earn credit by examination. For high school students, this program is called “Fast Track to Success.” If interested, our Program Specialists will be happy to provide you with more information.
