Bluffton University welcomes transfer students from any properly accredited college or university who have met Bluffton’s admission requirements. Full credit is normally given for all college-level courses (not remedial or developmental) which are completed at a regionally accredited college or university in which the applicant has earned a grade of C- or above. Transfer credit can be applied to the Bluffton University liberal arts and sciences requirements, major requirements (as permitted and approved by the department) or general electives.

To more clearly define the process of transferring credits, Bluffton has entered into articulation agreements with many two-year and community colleges.

Students completing an associate of arts or associate of science degree from the following institutions will normally only need two years at Bluffton to complete the bachelor of arts degree. The articulation agreements identify courses which meet Bluffton’s general education and major requirements leading to the majors listed below.
