Some students may consider further academic study after completing their Sessions College degrees courses or programs. While college credit transfer is never guaranteed—any admissions decision is always at the discretion of the accepting school—the status of Sessions College as a DETC accredited school makes a favorable credit transfer decision more likely than courses taken at a non-accredited school.
A 2006 DETC graduate survey indicated that of those who attempted to transfer credits and degrees, 70% were successful. However, if credit transfer is important to you, you should always check with the college or university that you wish to transfer your credits to before you enroll.
