Transferable certifications.

Your previous certifications may transfer as course credit.

Below, we identify the certifications that may transfer for each IT degree program as well as B.S. Health Information Management. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a general list of transferable IT certifications. These lists are for your convenience only and do not represent a special endorsement.

For transfer, certifications must have been earned within the last five years. Please speak to an Enrollment Counselor to determine if your certification will also meet the prerequisite for the programs, as not all transferable certifications will meet this requirement.
