Mid-Continent University Transfers

This means that students who require 30 hours or less to complete their bachelor’s degree will be provided with the remaining courses needed to graduate according to their planned program at Mid-Continent. UC will accept 100% of courses transferred from MCU. For students who have greater than 30 hours to complete their bachelor’s degree, their courses will be evaluated and the students will be placed on the UC planned program for completion of their program (see below for details).
