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. Credits are eligible to transfer into the general education core and to fulfill major and elective requirements.

Springfield College is a transfer-friendly institution and is committed to ensuring that students progress toward their degree in a timely fashion.  As a result, we will accept Pass, Credit, and Satisfactory grades for the semesters disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. For majors requiring a specific letter grade or GPA requirement, courses will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis for direct equivalency of major requirements.  If the direct equivalency to a major requirement can not be established, students will be awarded elective credit.

Credits that meet the following criteria will be reviewed for transfer equivalency.

  • The credits are less than 10 years old (seven years for sciences).
  • You earned a grade of C- or better in the course.
  • We offer a similar course at Springfield College.
  • The course was a 100 level course or higher (developmental courses are not eligible)..
  • The course was earned at a regionally accredited institution.

For students enrolled at our area community colleges, our general education course equivalency guides provide a clear sense of courses that will transfer to satisfy general education requirements at Springfield College.
