As an unaccredited institution, we felt it was important to ensure that our students who desire to continue their education will be able to do so without losing the academic ground they have gained at Hartwell. Therefore, our partner schools have committed to pre-determined numbers of credits that will transfer into their respective programs. The degree program and credit transfer amount can vary depending on the school.
