A maximum of 100 semester units may be accepted in transfer toward fulfilling bachelor degree requirements. Within these 100 units, no more than thirty (30) upper division units may be transferred and no more than ninety (90) lower division units may be transferred. A maximum of thirty (30) semester units is allowable from examinations (AP, CLEP, DANTES, IB). A maximum of eighteen (18) units may be accepted in transfer at the lower division level for college transcript completion of a Basic Peace Officer Standards Training (POST) certificate. A maximum of 45 semester units may be accepted in transfer toward fulfilling associate degree requirements.

The University will evaluate previous college work to determine its relationship to the requirements of California Baptist University. Only coursework completed with a grade of C- or better will be accepted in transfer. Lower division units and units from institutions that do not offer a baccalaureate degree will not be accepted for upper division credit. California Baptist University does not accept transfer work that was not designated as baccalaureate degree-applicable by the issuing institution.

All coursework completed at other institutions will be computed into the California Baptist University cumulative grade point average regardless of course transferability.

Transferring to CBU with an Associate's Degree?
Then make sure that you are also IGETC or CSU GE certified. All students who transfer to CBU with an IGETC or CSU GE certified Associate's Degree AND have a completed Associate's Degree before begining coursework at CBU are waived from their general education requirements except for ENG113, ENG123 and Christian Studies. Both of these certifications can be completed at a California Community College.
When ordering your official transcripts after completing your Associate's Degree, remember to ask that your IGETC or CSU GE certification be attached when sending to CBU!
