Visit the Admissions Section for transfer guidelines for specific programs.
Subject to the Graduation Requirements outlined above, students may transfer credits from other regionally accredited institutions and be eligible for the appropriate degree from Becker College, subject to meeting the following conditions:
Foreign transcripts: the student must request to have official college-level transcripts sent to a recognized credential evaluation service. Please visit the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES®) for a list of members and their websites. In this evaluation, the transcript will be translated into English, if needed, authenticated and equivalencies set to determine the level of education and its relation to accredited institutions in the United States. The results of the evaluation must be sent from the agency to Becker. While Becker agrees to review the evaluation for possible transfer credits, we reserve the right to accept or deny credits based upon the results of the evaluation. Fees are the responsibility of the student.
Courses from other than regionally accredited institutions may be evaluated for purposes of transfer. The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT) will be used as the basis for credit recommendations where such recommendations exist.
Credits awarded through the ACE formal credit recommendation process, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Advanced Placement (AP) count towards the maximum numbers of transfer credits described above. Courses taken as part of the Colleges of Worcester Consortium Cross-Registration program are considered Becker credits and do not count towards those limits.
Technical courses good for up to 5 years (science & technology)
Professional course good for up to 10 years (prefix-related or as specified)
General Education no time limit (English/Math/Non-required Elective, i.e., Psychology, Sociology, Humanities, etc.)
Transfer credit will not be computed into the student’s cumulative grade point average, including courses taken for “repeat” credit elsewhere.
Matriculated students should have courses evaluated for transferability prior to enrolling. Student should bring course descriptions to the Registrar’s Office.
