Maximizing College Transfer Credit Acceptance Saves Time (finish your degree faster) & Money (reduced tuition costs).

Trying to figure out how much college credit you can transfer, how much money you’ll save doing so, and how much faster you can finish your college degree based on your personal credit transfer situation? Then check out Franklin’s new My Transfer Credit App - it’s online calculator.

If you have existing college credits that may or may not transfer to the college or university that you’d like to attend now or in the future, you should give the My Transfer Credit calculator a try.

We worked hard to develop this tool, as we know that our students and prospective students find value in easy access to this kind of information.

If you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer your questions. Contact us at: http://www.franklin.edu/inquiry/transfer-credit

Happy President's Day - the day we celebrate all U.S. Presidents, past and present.

Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—Washington’s actual day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.

Who's your favorite president and why?

Teddy Roosevelt. He was a reformer. He saw increasing income inequality and used his office to do something about it. He was a Trustbuster.
