Credit Transfer Guidelines

Up to 80 JCCC credit hours transfer to Ottawa University.

All 100 level and above courses taken toward a JCCC degree, for which students earn a grade of "C" or better, are considered for transfer toward your bachelor's degree. Some limitations apply to activity and skill building courses.

All other credits in all JCCC associate degree programs and certificate programs are considered for transfer as electives to Ottawa University.

Students who complete an associate degree from JCCC will typically have fulfilled Ottawa University breadth area (general education) course requirements.

Credit from other institutions, CLEP/AP/DSST exams, health care registries, and military credit may also be considered for transfer.
