The Academic Advising Center at MassBay Community College performs Transfer Credit Evaluations for incoming Transfer Students. If you will be a new MassBay student enrolling in one of our degree or certificate programs and wish to apply credit from another college(s) towards your major, please note the process for Transfer Credit Evaluation at MassBay:
- You should submit official transcript(s) at least six (6) weeks prior to the time that you wish to register for upcoming classes to ensure credit is evaluated and posted prior to registration.
- Once courses have been officially approved and transferred, they will appear on your MassBay transcript and you will also receive a letter from the Advising Center informing you as to which of your courses transferred in.
Policies Regarding Transfer of Courses:
- MassBay only accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges or universities.
- MassBay accepts military credit from the American Council on Education as it applies to your choice of major.
- Credits may be transferred in only if they apply to your current major on record, and/or fulfill requirements in the MassTransfer Block.
- You must have earned a grade of “C-” or better in the course(s) for which you are requesting transfer credit.
- MassBay will not accept Pass/Fail coursework for transfer credit.
- A maximum of 75% of the total credits within the degree or certificate program may be earned by transfer credit.
- Transferred Science and Computer Science courses must have been taken within the last five (5) years.
- Foreign documents must be translated and evaluated by a credible agency, such as the Center for Educational Documentation (http://www.cedevaluations.com).
- Credit that is accepted according to general college policy is not necessarily acceptable for specific programs of study. This is particularly true in instances where program transfer limits and/or minimum grade requirements are in effect, such as the Health Professions Programs.
- The college reserves the right to refuse recognition for courses that were taken more than ten years prior to the date that students apply for transfer.
- Coursework must be represented in credit hours (clock hours will not be converted to MassBay credit hours).
