Brandman’s admission process is designed to help determine if the Brandman MyPath Competency-based, online academic model fits your needs. To be considered for entry, you must meet the following minimum requirements, although completing these does not guarantee admission into the program:

Prerequisites

0-11 transferrable credits:

  • Official High School transcript with graduation date or an official copy of GED
  • High school minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or equivalent
  • Passing scores on the English and Math admissions tests is required

12 or more transferable credits:

  • 2.0 GPA in all prior college coursework
  • Submit official transcripts of all prior academic work completed at all colleges or universities attended

Transfer Credit Policy

Once admissibility is determined, you will meet with your personal academic coach to discuss, among other items, articulation/transferability of prior coursework. Your qualified transfer credits will then be evaluated for clearance of competencies through the following methodology:

  1. Prior coursework, with a minimum of B- or better from regionally accredited institutions will first be evaluated against Brandman’s credit hour-based courses.
  2. Once prior credit has been determined to be equivalent to Brandman’s credit hour-based program, the university will then determine whether or not you will receive transfer credit for any of the competencies in the Brandman MyPath program.
  3. Transfer credit for competencies will not be granted for prior coursework where the content addresses some, but not all, of the content for a particular competency or block of competencies.
