How will I know if my credits will transfer to Shawnee State?

When choosing a college or university, be sure the institution has a regional accreditation. With a regional accreditation you can be assured the coursework and degree you complete will be recognized by Shawnee State. There are six regional accrediting agencies that cover the United States. If your school is regionally accredited by one of these agencies, your credits will transfer to Shawnee State on a course by course basis.
