Transfer Credits

You've already worked hard - and for that, we give you credit!

The transfer process can be a challenge to navigate, especially for students transitioning from a two-year program to a four-year program.  Millikin University has created resources to offer guidance for a successful transition to Millikin University.  Students who want to enter Millikin University from Richland Community College should use these resources to choose courses that will automatically transfer, pending successful completion with a C- or higher, or otherwise noted grade.  A maximum of 66 semester hours can be accepted.

Course Equivalencies

If you took, or plan to take coursework at Richland Community College, use these equivalency guides to determine how those courses transfer to Millikin University.  The course equivalency guide lists the courses offered at Richland Community College and how each of those corresponds to courses offered at Millikin University.  Evaluation for transfer courses not on these lists will be completed at the time of receipt of official transcripts.  These guides should be used in conjunction with academic advising and are not a replacement for meeting with your academic advisor to discuss personalized course planning.

The following courses can be transferred in from Richland Community College to meet Millikin’s University Studies Program requirements.  A grade of C- or higher is required unless otherwise noted below.  Courses can double dip with courses fulfilling major requirements.

Tabor School of Business Transfer Credit Guides

The Tabor School of Business offers nine different majors, each of which is open to transfer students.  Students may choose to major in Accounting, Business Management, Cyber Security, Digital Media Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Management Information Systems, or Organizational Leadership.   Students who major in Business Management can declare a concentration in Human Resources Management or Supply Chain & Logistics Management.

Transfer students need some prior preparation if they expect to graduate on time.  Ideally, students entering their junior year should have been awarded an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree and should have completed most of the core requirements for the desired major.  This page is a resource that offers guidance about appropriate preparation for a successful transition to Millikin University.  Students who enter Millikin University from Richland Community College can use this guide to choose courses that will automatically count toward the Tabor School of Business requirements pending successful completion with a C- or higher, or otherwise noted grade.

RN to BSN Dual Admission

Yes, I am interested in attending Richland Community College to study in the Associate for Applied Sciences (AAS) degree program in Nursing and then earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) at Millikin University. I understand that after I pass the NCLEX exam I will receive a 10% tuition discount off the Flex Student tuition rate beginning when I enroll in my first upper division nursing course at Millikin.
