Credit Transfer

CREDIT TRANSFER AND WORK EXPERIENCE CREDITS

Students can complete their degree in lesser time by taking advantage of Baychester Student Credit Transfer Program. This helps them continue their education program in a more flexible and affordable manner.

Baychester students enjoy a shorter and more affordable route to graduation through credit transfer. Approximately 80% of bachelor's students receive transfer credit toward their program, with half of them bringing in more than 50 credits. Similarly, 70% of doctoral students use credit transfer to save time and money on their program, with over half receiving 25 - 50 transfer credits into their program. Except in the case of a combined degree, your master’s program is unable to accept transfer credits from your bachelor’s.

Save time and money on your Baychester degree when you transfer credits from regionally accredited or internationally recognized institutions.

Your transcript will be evaluated against Baychester's transfer credit and prior learning assessment policy and based on factors such as applicability to degree requirements, grade earned, match to Baychester courses per department, title, level, and description of course content.

You will receive a transfer credit evaluation, including a summary of the courses that have been accepted for transfer; transfer credit is awarded for those courses. You can appeal your transfer credit evaluation by submitting additional information, including and extended course description and syllabus.
