Bastyr University accepts graduate transfer credits earned at accredited colleges and universities. If you have completed a professional program such as chiropractic, allopathic or osteopathic medicine, you may be eligible for advanced standing. Additionally, if you have attended but not graduated from similar graduate or professional programs, such as acupuncture and Oriental medicine, you may be eligible to transfer your credits. Naturopathic Medicine applicants seeking transfer credit will be required to pay a $150 transfer evaluation fee, Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine, and Midwifery applicants will be required to pay a $100 transfer evaluation fee.
Please see the Transfer into a Graduate Degree page for detailed information and policies.
Because Bastyr University is an upper-division institution, all undergraduates are transfer students who have completed undergraduate coursework elsewhere. The University accepts undergraduate transfer credits earned at any regionally accredited college or university as long as the courses are similar in content and taught at the same level as courses at Bastyr University.
Bastyr University is now accepting completed Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees to satisfy General Education requirements when transferring into a Bastyr Bachelor’s Degree. Please note: students must also complete prerequisites specific to their major.
Incoming students who have not completed or who are not on-track to complete an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, DTA (WA); the IGETC (CA), CSU Breadth (CA) or Associate Degree for Transfer (CA) will have their courses articulated for general education credit on a course-by-course basis.
You may transfer a maximum of 135 quarter credits or 90 semester credits toward an undergraduate degree at the University. You must have at least a 2.50 cumulative grade point average, with a grade of C (2.0) or better in all required courses. Please see the Transfer into an Undergraduate Degree page for detailed information and policies.
