Take your education to the next level

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is dedicated to helping you acquire an education that leads to a rewarding career path filled with opportunities. For some students, this means reinforcing the education they receive at UTI by earning an undergraduate degree at an accredited university.

UTI maintains articulation agreements with several universities that offer undergraduate degree programs. These agreements make it possible for you to transfer certain credit hours earned at UTI to degree programs at participating institutions.* As a result, you'll save time and money by receiving credit for eligible courses that you've already completed at UTI, giving you a head start as you pursue a higher education.

See your Student Development Advisor for more information.

*The institution accepting transfer credit from UTI makes the final determination regarding transferability. Agreements subject to change.
