Do You Have Your Associate Degree?

At Tiffin University we value you, your degree and all that you’ve accomplished. We’ll make sure every credit you’ve already earned is considered toward your bachelor’s degree – so that you can quickly and affordably reach your goals.

To put it simply, if you have an associate degree, you can earn your bachelor’s degree from Tiffin University in 61 (or fewer) credits. Depending on your previous academic accomplishments, you may be able to complete your bachelors in even fewer credits, but the maximum you will be required to take is 61.

Research shows that bachelor’s degree holders earn more per year, have access to more job opportunities, have higher job satisfaction and experience higher levels of self-esteem. The time and financial investment to obtain a bachelor’s degree will be well worth it in the long run. At Tiffin University, you could get there faster than at most other institutions.

  • If you have an associate degree*, you will maximize credit for your classes completed. You will only need a maximum of 61 credits to graduate.
    • Other institutions evaluate your credits on a course-by-course basis and may require you to retake courses you’ve already earned credit for. This ultimately costs you more money, time and frustration.
    • The classes you take at TU will be specifically focused on your major.
  • Programs are 100 percent online, accredited and affordable.
  • A dedicated advisor will be with you from the time you enroll until graduation.
  • You’ll learn in a highly-supportive environment with faculty and administration, because our only goal is for you to meet your full potential.

*An associate degree must be from a regionally accredited institution. If you have an associate degree in a trade program, you can maximize your transfer credits in our BA Workplace Leadership program.

No matter your original field of study, you will only be required to take a maximum of 61 credits toward any of the associate to bachelor’s degree programs listed below:
