Q. Will my Credits transfer to another school?
A. U.S. Career Institute cannot guarantee the transfer of credits to other institutions. The acceptance of transfer of academic credits to another institution is determined by the receiving institution. Colleges/institutions individually establish criteria for transfer credit acceptance based on many factors, including but not limited to course content, final grade, credits per course, type of accreditation, age of credits, etc. USCI certificate courses may or may not transfer to other colleges and transferability depends solely on the receiving institution’s criteria and determination. USCI does not imply or guarantee the transferability of credits from its courses. In general, courses in a clock-hour format do not transfer to courses in a semester or quarter hour format.
