California Miramar University awards transfer credit for academic credit earned at previous accredited colleges and universities that align with the University’s curriculum. Applicants who wish to obtain transfer credit must provide transcripts to California Miramar University’s Registrar for evaluation as per our admissions process. For the purposes of admission, unofficial transcripts may be evaluated for transfer credits. However, official transcripts must be on file before an enrollment agreement can be issued. Failure to provide an official transcript will result in the removal of any accepted transfer credits from the student’s enrollment record and the student will be required to repeat those courses with CMU.

California Miramar University offers accommodations to students who disclose themselves as meeting ADA requirements.  Please contact the University Registrar at [email protected] or by calling 858-653-3000 ext 12.

When applying for any degree program at CMU, all applicants are required to submit official transcripts from all schools previously attended for evaluation. Upon receipt, CMU will complete your degree audit detailing transfer credit and listing all courses required for degree completion.

Please request officials to be sent directly to: CMU, 3550 Camino Del Rio N, Suite 208, San Diego, CA 92108 or for electronic submission send via email to [email protected]. Please contact admissions if you need assistance, we are happy to assist.
