MBU Online Transfer Credit

You went to work early and came home when the kids were already asleep. You were a regular at your local community college. You launched your own business. You spent time away from family and friends as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces.

All that experience? We value it. We value you. Bring your knowledge to MBU Online with our generous transfer credit policy. Read more below and request information today to get started.

Types of Credit

Transfer Credit from Accredited Colleges and Universities

One of an advisor’s main objectives is to simplify the process to transfer up to 84 credit hours from another accredited college or university. Mary Baldwin’s unique agreement with the Virginia Community College system provides that any student with a transfer-oriented degree from one of Virginia’s 23 community colleges with a GPA of 2.5 or higher may qualify for guaranteed admission. See what specific VCCS classes will transfer.

Credit by Examination

Another way to earn credit is by taking College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests. If you score at or above the appropriate level on a CLEP test, you receive three to six semester hours’ credit to apply toward your degree.

Prior Learning Portfolio

Your MBU Online advisor is eager to help you determine how professional experience, continuing education courses, and knowledge gained in other settings can also translate into credit.

The prior learning portfolio, which is submitted to faculty for evaluation, can incorporate:

  • On-the-job experience.
  • Volunteer service, reading, travel, and other pursuits.
  • Service in the military or medical fields.
  • Specialized training.

Nationally Standardized Assessment

Formal learning experiences sponsored by such non-collegiate agencies as the military and the American Institute of Banking can be assessed and awarded credit according to the recommendations of the American Council on Education.
