There are many ways prospective students may have earned credit. The following are ways that students can earn transfer credits/advanced standing.
Monroe College may accept up to 12 credits (four courses) into a degree sequence from coursework completed at Straigherline. Students who have earned college credits at previous institutions will need to speak with an admissions counselor at (1-800-556-6676) to determine how both the previous academic credits and Straighterline courses may be able to transfer.
Students who have previously attended an accredited degree granting college or university may transfer up to 30 credits toward an Associate Degree or up to 90 credits into the Bachelor's Degree program based on the applicability to their program of study.
