About Franklin University

Founded in 1902, Franklin University has built its reputation on improving access to relevant, high-quality academic programs for ambitious adults who balance their educational goals with other commitments. Focused on meeting the needs of students, Franklin University soon became known as a pioneer in education growing from a locally well-known business school to a global institution with expertise that encompasses many disciplines and spans all aspects of the learning process.

Today, the University has grown from its Main Campus in the heart of Columbus – Ohio’s capital and the 15th-largest city in the United States – to more than 20 locations in numerous states. One of Ohio’s largest private universities, Franklin offers more than 40 undergraduate and graduate programs. Whether our students choose to study in the United States, at one of our Global Partner Schools or online, all Franklin students receive a high-quality, affordable education that enables them to realize their educational and professional goals.

As a nonprofit, Franklin University puts students first, investing in technology, people and services designed to support student success. Franklin’s effective transfer credit process allows students to apply more previously earned credit toward their degrees – saving them time and money.

At Franklin, 90 percent of undergraduate students transfer college credits from at least one other institution. Standing behind our dedication to awarding students the credit they’ve earned, the University created myTransferCredit, an online tool that links prospective students directly to the University’s transfer credit database. In addition to providing free, real-time transfer equivalencies between Franklin degree requirements and courses taken previously elsewhere, myTransferCredit shows prospective students which Franklin majors give them the best return on their credit by providing estimated degree completion dates and a monetary value of the credit toward the total cost of the degree.

The University incorporates quality, comparability, appropriateness and applicability as central components in all transfer credit decisions and was awarded the inaugural Exemplar of Integrity award by the Center for Academic Integrity.

Franklin maintains its long-standing regional accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission, and in recent years has also received specialized accreditation for specific business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
