To transfer into the B.A. program, students must have a minimum of 60 credits from a regionally accredited 2- or 4-year college or university. Students may petition to have a maximum of 15 additional credits accepted for transfer if they are in related disciplines. Students pursuing the on-ground course of study may also have the opportunity to enroll in online courses.
