The University Transfer Program enables students to begin in Marbella the first 2 years of university, studies, covering much of the basic coursework required by all North American universities. Throughout these first 2 years, students do not have the obligation to decide the university degree they want to pursue. This decision can be made in the third academic year, with all the advantages that this entails.


Upon completion of those 2 years of university, students receive the "Associate of Arts Degree" from Keiser University, which is recognized and accepted worldwide.

After obtaining an Associate of Arts Degree, students can continue their third and fourth year at Keiser University or transfer to any other university in the US or Europe that offers the North American university system where they can complete their degree: BA (Bachelor of Arts), BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) or BSc (Bachelor of Science).

The System works in the following way:

– Credits for courses taken at The American College in Spain are transferred and accepted as credits toward the degree of another institution. Universities in the USA will generally accept credits from other accredited institutions if the student has earned a minimum of a “C” grade in the course and if the student’s current institution has equivalent class work in its curriculum that meets the receiving institution’s degree requirements.

– Each institution has different requirements for its degrees, which all students must meet. Many universities insist that all specialized requirements for a degree be completed at the degree-awarding institution, a fact, which limits the amount a receiving university will award in transfer credits.

– Some institutions have residency requirements, which state that a certain portion of the courses must be done at the degree awarding university. All of these factors must be taken into consideration at the time of planning for a student’s transfer.
