Graduate Degrees

Graduate-level credit with grade B or higher from regionally accredited institutions of higher education may be transferred to Aurora University and applied toward a master’s degree or other post-baccalaureate program prior to enrollment into AU Online with the approval of the program chair or school dean. Each graduate program limits the amount of credit that can be applied toward an Aurora University degree.

Community College Transfer Credit

AU Online will accept up to 68 transferable credit hours from community colleges. Students who have earned an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts from a regionally accredited college may have met all of the General Education Requirements. Students who do not have an associate degree will be required to complete all AU general education requirements, either through transfer coursework and/or AU coursework.


All transfer students should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Upon acceptance to AU Online, students will be reviewed for eligible federal/state grants, federal loans, and institutional grants and scholarships.
