So, you went to college somewhere else? It's okay. We don't mind. You're here now.

You could earn credit for your previously completed college courses.*

You must contact the Registrar’s Office of the prior institution and have its office submit the form and official transcripts directly to the Kaplan University Office of the Registrar at the address listed below.
