Except for six credits in religious studies, transfer students will be considered to have fulfilled the university’s general education requirement provided they have completed either an Associate of Arts degree from a regionally accredited college or university or an Associate of Science degree from a Viterbo-approved and regionally accredited two-year college program. (A degree from a vocational/technical school does not qualify unless the school has accredited college parallel programs.)
