Congratulations on your choice to complete your bachelor’s degree! Whether you’re transferring with an associate degree or choosing to finish a bachelor’s degree you started elsewhere, Auburn’s Bachelor of Computer Science (BCS) is a degree completion program specifically designed with your needs in mind. Still, transferring programs can be stressful. Here are some of the most common questions we get from prospective students about this process.
How will I know which of my credits transfer?
Since this is a degree completion program, we work hard to make sure you don’t have to duplicate any of your course work. Once you apply, your course work will be input into our system. Any classes that have already been evaluated will immediately populate, and you’ll be offered credit. If one of your classes isn’t in our database, you’ll receive an evaluation hold. Once you’re accepted to the BCS program, your Admissions Advisor will work to evaluate all remaining credits to determine how they correspond with required classes at Auburn.
How many credits can I transfer?
The online Bachelor’s in Computer Science program requires 120 credits to graduate. Since Auburn’s university-wide policy is that you may transfer as many as half of your required credits, you can transfer up to 60 credits.
What if my course work doesn’t transfer?
It’s true that there are some courses that Auburn won’t accept toward your degree, like remedial or technical courses. For all other course work, we do our best to make sure you don’t duplicate your efforts. If you feel that your transfer credits have been improperly evaluated, you should reach out to your Admissions Advisor. They’ll work with you to make double sure that your work is being considered appropriately toward your degree.
Finish Your Degree at Auburn
Since this program is designed for students working to finish the undergraduate degree they already started—as well as those who are seeking a second degree for career advancement—we know a lot about how your credits will transfer to our program. If you want to get a sense of what will be transferring before you even apply, feel free to check out our course calculator, which can help you figure out which classes at Auburn are equivalent to courses you’ve already taken.
Studies show that workers who achieve a bachelor’s degree out-earn their peers with either an associate or a high school diploma, so the value of completing your degree can’t be overstated.
