BSU is transfer friendly! These are some of our best transfer partners.

About 50% of new BSU students each year are TRANSFERS!

Why? Because BSU is transfer friendly, and we offer great degree-completion programs both on-campus and online. We know that students take many paths to reach BSU, and we honor the journey you’ve taken. Our goal is to provide you the best possible transfer credit outcome. Please see our Transfer Credits page for more information.

How long does it take to graduate?

Most bachelor’s degree-completion programs can be done in two years at a full-time pace, and depending on how many credits you’re transferring. Most programs can be started in any semester, including summer. Check the course catalog for more details on your major.

How much will it cost?

All BSU students, regardless of your state of residence, pay the same affordable tuition. Enroll full time and gain the benefit of our banded tuition (no change in tuition between 12-18 credits), or take classes part time and continue to work, raise your family, and take care of business. Learn more about financial aid for transfer students.

Summer classes begin May 13, 2024, and fall classes begin August 26. Get transfer-specific advising right here.
