Transferring Credits from Other Institutions

Subject to the Graduation Requirements, students may transfer credits from other regionally accredited institutions and be eligible for the appropriate degree from Becker College by:

  1. Completion of at least 50 percent of their course work at a regionally accredited four-year college, university, or equivalent, to receive a baccalaureate degree; approved articulation agreements may in select circumstances exceed this limit.
  2. Completion of at least 25 percent of their course work at Becker College to receive a baccalaureate or associate’s degree
  3. Completion of at least half of the 3000-4000 level courses in their major field of study at Becker College
  4. Grades of C or better from regionally accredited institutions are subject to the time restrictions below. A grade of P is acceptable, provided the transfer school's transcript key lists a letter grade equivalent to a C. Foundations/developmental/preparatory courses will not transfer to Becker College for credit toward graduation requirements (see course description for notation of foundations/developmental/preparatory course type).
  5. Courses must be similar in scope, breadth, and depth of content. Course descriptions and, at times, syllabi will be used as the basis for this determination.
  6. Courses must be within one level of the course at Becker College for which they will be used. Courses must have similar or greater prerequisites if they are to be considered for transfer from a lower level.

Technical courses: Good for up to 5 years (science and technology)
Professional course: Good for up to 10 years (prefix-related or as specified)
General Education: No time limit (English/math/non-required elective such as psychology, sociology, humanities, etc.).

See Admissions for transfer guidelines for specific programs.

Transfer credit will not be computed into the student’s cumulative grade point average, including courses taken for “repeat” credit elsewhere. Becker College will consider foreign transcripts for credit transfer evaluation. A maximum of 30 credit hours will be accepted from CLEP.
