Transfer Guide

Mercy College of Ohio welcomes transfer students who meet all admission criteria for degree or transient/special status admission and who supply official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. A minimum of 30 (for Associate, Certificate and Bachelors Completion students) and 36 (for Bachelors Pre-licensure students) credit hours including one religion courses taught from the Catholic perspective must be taken from Mercy College of Ohio to meet residency requirements.

The Transfer Credit Information found here is to be used as a guide only to aid in which course credits may transfer to Mercy College. Final decisions concerning the transfer of course credits are made by the appropriate academic advisor. 

The Student Records office is currently reviewing and updating all transfer guides as necessary and the list below is subject to change.

Credit for Military Service and Training

You may be eligible to receive college credit toward a certificate or degree by using the learning you received while in the military.  To be considered for credit, please order a copy of your Military Joint Services Transcript by going to or AirForce/CCAF transcript at and provide a copy of your DD214 to the Student Records office.

Transfer of Credit

Transfer of credit is considered on an individual basis and may be granted for comparable science, general education and specific program courses completed at other regionally accredited post-secondary institutions. Note: Transfer of credit of specific program courses is different for each program. Please refer to Program Handbooks for complete details.

For transfer credit to be granted, a course must correspond to one offered through Mercy College of Ohio or be evaluated as comparable by the appropriate faculty. Students seeking transfer credit are responsible for supplying a course description for those courses considered for transfer that are not listed on our Transfer Guide on the web. To determine course equivalency, students may also be requested to supply course syllabi and/or other materials related to a specific course. To have a course reviewed for transfer credit, students must email the Registrar at and attach the course description of the course they wish to transfer. A response, by email, will be provided within 48 hours upon receipt of initial request. Any general education and science course with a grade of ‘C’ or better and taken within the past seven years (excluding program courses, which do not transfer) will be considered for transfer. To waive the time limits, student must meet with their advisor and submit a Waiver/Substitution Form.

Any course with a grade of ‘C’ or better and taken within the past seven years (nursing courses must have been taken within the past three years) will be considered for transfer. Written requests to waive the time limits will be considered on an individual basis. Students may be required to complete a departmentally prepared examination in the subject area to validate their current knowledge in specific subject areas. For credit to be awarded a grade of ‘C’ or better must be achieved on such examinations. A fee for the administration/grading of these exams will be assessed.

Transfer credits are not calculated in the student’s grade point average.
