Applying as a Transfer Student for Fall 2015

Berea encourages the application of transfer students who have achieved at least a minimum college GPA of 2.5. The average successful transfer applicant to Berea College has a college GPA of 3.25. Students with less than a 2.5 college GPA in the last 24 hours of college credit are ineligible for admission to Berea College.

Applying for Fall 2015 Admission

The deadline for completed applications from transfer students has passed. Incomplete applications as of April 1 will be denied admission. Berea College does not offer Spring or Summer admission to transfer students.

Required Application Materials

The transfer application deadline for Fall 2015 has passed. The application will reopen this summer to allow students to apply for Fall 2016.

Additional Information for Transfer Students

Students who have attempted college-level coursework must have official copies of all transcripts sent to the Admissions Office, even if you do not wish to transfer the credit. Failure to report previous college-level work may affect a pending offer of admission. In no case is any student who has earned an undergraduate degree eligible for admission.

Credit is awarded for every college-level course completed at a regionally accredited institution with a grade of C or better provided the work has been completed within ten years from the date you plan to begin study at Berea College. Credits earned as part of a certificate program are not transferrable.

Semester or quarter hours will be translated to Berea credits using the following conversion:
1 Berea Credit = 4 Semester Hours
1 Berea Credit = 6 Quarter Hours

Though courses may not yield one full credit, they may still be eligible to meet requirements. To be eligible to meet requirements, a course must bear at least 3 semester hours or 4.5 quarter hours.
