Transferring Credits | Springfield College

Transferring Credits

Transferring made simple.

Springfield College provides each accepted student with a transfer credit evaluation that includes how credits were received as well as which credits are needed to complete a bachelor’s degree.

Generally, courses taken at regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher in which students earned a grade of C- or better will transfer to Springfield College as well as credits earned on joint service transcripts. Credits are eligible to transfer into the core curriculum and to fulfill major and elective requirements.
