The Transfer Credit Report is a summary of previous college credits (course grades of C- or higher) that are accepted by Sage. Students and Faculty Advisors may view transfer course and equivalency information in SageAdvisor.

Transfer credit is carefully evaluated and brought in based on the student’s declared major upon admission. Sage brings in only the transfer credits that will meet a specific major or degree requirement. For students starting a new major or career direction may find that not all of their previous college credits are accepted.

  • 1/2 of the major requirements must be completed as Sage institutional credits.
  • 30 of the remaining 45 credits needed for degree completion must be completed at Sage.
  • RSC students: may transfer in up to 75 credit hours toward a bachelor degree. Of this 75, a maximum of 66 credits may be transferred in from 2 year colleges.
  • SPCE & SageOnline students: may transfer up to 90 credit hours. Of this 90, a maximum of 66 credits may be from 2-year colleges
  • Completion of 120 credits (minimum) is required for a bachelor’s degree.
