Certification Transfer Credits

In addition to the courses listed above, ABTU will award transfer credit for any Industry Certification earned within the last three years that corresponds to an ABTU program. If ABTU has an academic course that provides for the industry certification, credit will be awarded in the same amount as granted by the academic course and credit will be given for the corresponding academic courses(s). If ABTU does not have a corresponding academic course, elective credit will be granted, normally three (3) credit hours per certification, for any appropriate ABTU program. Students may submit their Industry Certifications to ABTU along with their program choice to determine what credit may be granted.
