Transfer Student Resources

Transfer Student Resources

  • General Education Requirements – the Office of the Registrar only evaluates transfer credit for General Education requirements.
  • Major Requirements – If you feel like previous coursework may count toward a major requirement, you should discuss it with your academic advisor. If your academic advisor supports the transfer of credit, you will then request permission from your intended major’s academic department chair via email and attach a copy of the course syllabus.
    • how many terms they are charging you (based on the number of credits that transfer students have previously completed) and
    • how many terms you have to complete your Berea College education along with your expected graduation date.
      • Course Schedule for the First Term – The Office of Academic Affairs will schedule all students, including transfer students, for courses during their first term at Berea College.
      • Changes to Your First Course Schedule – Transfer students should contact the Office of Student Success & Transition or their academic advisor to ask about making changes to their schedule before the beginning of the term.
      • GSTR 210 Required – All Berea College students, including transfer students, must take GSTR 210, even if they have taken an ENG 102 or Composition II course at another institution.
      • Math Placement Exam Required – All students, including transfer students, must complete the Math Placement Exam. If a student’s Math Placement Exam score indicates the student should take Developmental Math (MAT 010, 011, or 012), the student has to enroll in Developmental Math continuously and complete the required courses before the beginning of their third regular (Fall or Spring) term. You can find more information about the Developmental Math Requirement in the College Catalog.
