This guide is designed to help prospective students see how courses at your community college may equate to courses and requirements at BVU. Transferred coursework may be used to satisfy institutional course requirements in the major, minor, concentration, general education or elective categories. Degree requirements and course descriptions do change and these documents are subject to periodical updates. Therefore this guide is based only upon the catalog year noted and is unofficial. Official evaluations will be performed upon receipt of all official college transcripts and/or upon enrollment at BVU.
Current BVU students may also utilize this guide. However, be reminded that students desiring to enroll in another post-secondary institution with the intent of applying credits earned to a BVU degree program must secure written approval in advance of taking the course.
