If you are considering transferring to KCU for one of our other traditional and on campus degree programs, we will need official transcripts from your previous colleges to evaluate your credits. In order for your classes to qualify for transfer credit, you must have received a grade of “C” or better and the course must serve as an equivalent to a course required for your degree program here at KCU.  Our registrar will work with you to determine which classes can transfer and make sure you receive the most credit possible.

*Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree must be earned at a regionally accredited academic institution.

Discover Your Path

“The Humanities Department opened its doors right around the time where I was caught in a bit of a personal dilemma. I was studying music, but really wanted to further my studies in film through an internship in Los Angeles. The department was made for someone like me, who was trying to navigate a lot of artistic interests and find the career path buried in the middle of all of them. That internship changed my life and the KCU Humanities Department made it not only possible, but easy to follow my heart.”
