Transfer of Collegiate Credit

Collegiate credit may be granted for credit courses successfully completed at other degree-granting institutions in accordance with the following policies:

  1. The Transfer Coordinator in consultation with faculty determines whether transferred courses satisfy Goodwin College degree requirements.
  2. Only courses completed with grades of "C" or higher may be eligible for transfer.
  3. Some degree programs require a higher passing grade than "C" to satisfy specific course requirements. Students should consult with their Academic Advisor to ensure that transferable courses satisfy degree requirements.
  4. Officially transferred credit will be posted to the student's transcript upon receipt of official transcripts.
  5. Once a student is matriculated at Goodwin College, no additional credits earned at other institutions will be transferred with the exception of active military students.
  6. Credits earned at international institutions may be considered for transfer. It is the student's responsibility to have his/her international transcript evaluated by an evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) and to have an official copy of the results sent to Goodwin College for evaluation and assessment of credit.
  7. Credits awarded are given the grade of TR and are not included in the calculation of the Grade Point Average. These credits will count both as credits attempted and as credits earned in determining satisfactory academic progress.
  8. Residency requirement: All students are required to take a minimum of 25% of all coursework toward a credential at Goodwin College. Students should consult the catalog pages that pertain to their major for any additional degree requirements. The last 12 credits posted to a student's transcript must be taken at Goodwin College with the exception of active military students.
