Criminal Justice Transfer Information

 

Mount Mercy welcomes transfer students from many different colleges and universities. Details about applying are available from Admissions. Information about specific courses transfering for the criminal justice major and minor should be directed to the Registrar or the faculty in the criminal justice program.

Transfer Credits: Typically, students can transfer up to 63 semester hours from a community college.  Additional credits can be transferred from a four-year college or university. However, students must complete their last 30 semester hours at Mount Mercy.

Summer and Online Courses: Once a student is enrolled at Mount Mercy, a special permission must be obtained to take courses at other institutions and transfer these credits to Mount Mercy. The student will need to work with his/her academic advisor to complete a petition, which includes a course description of the class the student proposes to take. Approvals must be obtained from the academic advisor, department chair for the discipline the course is located in, and the Provost. Again, students must complete their last 30 semester hours at Mount Mercy.
