Kettering University accepts a maximum of 72 credits completed prior to admission from accredited institutions. Once enrolled as a student at Kettering, a maximum of eight additional credit hours may be transferred.
Only credit earned at institutions accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies will be considered for transfer. Regional accreditation does not automatically result in transferability of coursework. The various colleges and/or departments of the University determine individual course equivalency and transferability. When the coursework has been completed at an institution outside of the United States, the institution must be officially recognized by the Ministry of Education of that country as a degree-granting institution.
