Medical Assisting Program - Transfer of Credits

The Associate of Science in Medical Assisting program requires 64 credits for graduation.  A medical assisting student may transfer up to 13 college credit medical assisting courses and 17 non-medical assisting credits, no more than 30 total, to fulfill the graduation requirement. 

The school has established guidelines to ensure that the currency, comparability, relevancy to the medical assisting program, calculation of credits, and grade earned for the transfer courses meet the criteria of the medical assisting program. All previous education and experience will be evaluated, and credits will be granted accordingly to decrease the number of courses and reduce cost.
