Do you accept credits from other colleges?

Do your require GRE or GMAT scores?
The GRE and GMAT are not required as part of the Admissions process.
What is the difference between a regional and a national accreditation?
The regional and national accrediting agencies meet the same US DOE standards, are all recognized by the US DOE, and are eligible for federal student aid because of this recognition.
Regional and national accrediting agencies differ primarily in the approach they take in complying with US DOE standards, and both approaches are acceptable. Generally, the approach of the regionals is less prescriptive, or more subjective, while the approach of the nationals is more prescriptive, or less subjective. The regionals have based their accreditation model on the traditional responsibilities of teaching, research and service in higher education. The nationals continue a tradition of career focus in their educational model, focusing on measurable outcomes such as degree completion and job placement.
If you attend a nationally accredited institution, it is possible to transfer and get your credits accepted by a regionally accredited school. However, decisions about transfer of credit are made at the local level by the receiving colleges and universities. Each institution has its own policies governing the acceptance of credit from other institutions. Students seeking to transfer credits earned to another institution should contact the other institution to which they seek admission to inquire as to that institution’s policies on credit transfer.
Are my Argosy University credits transferable?
It is the student's responsibility to confirm whether or not credits will be accepted by another school and Argosy University does not imply, promise, or guarantee transferability of its credits to any other institution. In the U. S. higher education system, transferability of credit is always determined by the receiving institution, taking into account such factors as course content, grades, accreditation and licensing.
