Will my credits from Harrison transfer to other colleges?

While the curriculum at Harrison 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 to another institution is not guaranteed, as it is up to the receiving institution to decide if they will accept your credits. Check with the appropriate party at the receiving institution to find out if they accept our credits, and we will be happy to send them your transcript or other required documentation.

Will Harrison accept credits previously earned by another institution?

Harrison considers credits for transfer from other accredited colleges. Decisions to accept incoming credits to Harrison from another school are made by the registrar or dean at your local campus. Information regarding these previously earned credits should be shared with your admissions representative when inquiring about Harrison. Additionally, if your previous credits do not meet Harrison qualification guidelines, you may attempt to earn credit for courses by testing out of a particular course. For high school students, this program is called “Fast Track to Success.”
