Transfer of Credit

Berea College accepts transfer credit from regionally-accredited institutions for all courses with a grade of “C” or higher. Berea College also accepts AP credit (scores of 3 or above), IB credit (higher level scores of 4 or above), and CLEP credit. Official transcripts are required from each issuing agency before the coursework will be evaluated. Transcripts submitted by students or stamped “issued to student” are not considered official and will not be accepted. Transcripts should be sent to:

Since Berea College awards in course credits and not semester hours, the following conversion chart explains course credit equivalencies:

Semester hours                                                Quarter hours

4 hours = 1 credit                                            6 hours = 1 credit

3 hours = .75 credit                                         5 hours = .83 credit

2 hours = .5 credit                                           4 hours = .6 credit

1 hour – .25 credit                                           3 hours = .5 credit

2 hours = .3 credit

1 hours = .16 credit

All transfer work is evaluated by the Office of the Registrar. The office will consult with Academic Program Chairs in order to determine Berea College departmental course equivalencies in those instances for which curricular equivalencies are not clear. If not accepted to meet a specific Berea College requirement, such credit will be designated as elective credit. In addition, no credit will be given for courses not at the college level, including remedial courses, or for courses for which grades of P, S, U, or their equivalents, have been assigned.
