Transfer Credit (Day and ACPE)

TRANSFER CREDIT (DAY PROGRAMS)
To qualify for transfer credit at Wentworth, an applicant:

  • must have been admitted to the Institute for a specific program of study
  • provide college catalog with a course description
  • provide an official transcript of the student’s record in the course
  • receive a final grade of “C” (2.00 out of 4.00) or better in that course
  • must have taken the course at a regionally accredited institution and in some cases from an accredited program

For incoming students, transfer credit for Institutional Requirements is evaluated by the Transfer Coordinator in the Student Service Center, using the criteria listed in the General Guidelines. Students applying for transfer credits in the design disciplines (Industrial and Interior Design) must present a portfolio of their work in addition to the official transcript. Students should contact the department directly to schedule a review of their portfolio. Students majoring in Architecture must complete all architecture courses at Wentworth.

Once the student has matriculated, he/she can request that the curricular department review the transfer credit for his/her specific program. The same criteria apply as listed in the General Guidelines. Department heads use the Advanced Standing form to process this additional credit. The student submits a current catalog (or copy of pertinent sections) that lists the course description and credit hours from the institution at the time they took this academic work to the curricular department head. Department heads at their discretion may review and amend the transfer credit subject to a student’s performance and available credits. If approved, the curricular department head signs the form and forwards it to the academic department head (if different). The academic department head then approves or denies the petition.
