Transferring Credits

You put in the hard work to earn the credit. Now let it work hard for you.

Applying What You've Earned

Whether you are joining Mercer as a next step to earning your associate degree at community college or transferring after one or more semesters at another four-year institution, we want you to get the credit you deserve toward completion of your Mercer degree. That’s why we’ve made the process of transferring credits as seamless as possible – getting you closer to your degree faster.

Transfer Equivalency Estimator

Use the Transfer Equivalency Estimator to get an estimate of how your previously earned credit hours may transfer to Mercer. This estimator tool is subject to revision as we continue to add new institutions and course equivalencies. The Transfer Equivalency Estimator does not provide a complete or official list of courses that will transfer to Mercer.


Mercer will evaluate all previously earned credits for transfer credit eligibility, including courses from institutions not included in the Transfer Equivalency Estimator.
