To be considered for admission, each transfer applicant must submit the following application materials:
Students who transfer into Becker College may be given up to forty-five (45) credits toward an associate degree and ninety (90) credits toward a bachelor’s degree for course work completed with a grade of C or better at other accredited post-secondary institutions. Course work in science and technology must be completed with a grade of C or better within five years in order to be considered for transfer credit. Acceptance of transfer credit does not supersede time limits for prerequisite requirements, i.e. math and science courses as related to nursing and veterinary admissions requirements. Transfer credit will not be computed into the student’s cumulative grade point average. Transfer scholarships are available through the Office of Financial Aid. Becker College graduates returning to earn another degree will have credits from their first degree applied toward the second degree, where appropriate. These credits will be treated as transfer credits.
Students who have successfully completed an associate’s degree in veterinary technology from an AVMA-accredited institution may apply for admission into the Becker College bachelor of science in veterinary science degree program. Minimum criteria include:
Students who have successfully completed an associate’s degree program or equivalent undergraduate academic credit at an accredited institution must have a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or higher and a passing score on the Communications and Literacy Section of the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) to enter Becker College bachelor’s degree programs in either early childhood education or elementary education. Those students who transfer prior to completing an associate’s degree must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0.
