Transfer Credit Guide

Transfer equivalency will appear in one of four forms:

One to One- a single course at your previous school is matched up with a single Wentworth course. It will appear like this:

  • External Class(es): EN101 English I
  • Credits: 4
     
  • Wentworth Classes: ENGL100 English I
  • Credits: 4

In this case, the external course EN101 was accepted as credit for the Wentworth course ENGL100.

 

One to Equivalent – a single course at your previous school is used to give credit for a course equivalent where there is no specific Wentworth course that matches it:

  • External Class(es): PLS113 American Politics
  • Credits: 3
     
  • Wentworth Classes: SSEL1XX Social Science Elective Equivalent
  • Credits: 3

In this case, there is no Wentworth course that specifically matches the American Politics course taken at the previous school, so equivalent credit is awarded. This credit will satisfy the degree requirement without having to match directly to an existing Wentworth course.

 

Many to One – in some cases, more than one class may be combined to grant credit for one Wentworth course. This is typically done where the credit hours or course content of the Wentworth class are spread among more than one class from the previous school:

  • External Class(es): MAC1105 College Algebra
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): MAC1114 Trigonometry
  • Credits: 3
     
  • Wentworth Classes: MATH205 College Math I
  • Credits: 4

In this case, two math courses from the previous school are combined to meet the credit hours and content of one Wentworth course. In this case, the extra credits are not awarded elsewhere.

 

Many to Many – here, several classes from the previous school are combined to give credit for more than one Wentworth course. This is often done where courses are offered in sequence (such as math courses) or where the course content and credit hours can be combined into several Wentworth courses or equivalents (often with humanities and social science courses):

  • External Class(es): BUS211 Business Law
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): CONS100 Construction Management
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): CONS104 Const Proc – Plan & Sched
  • Credits: 3
     
  • Wentworth Class(es): CMGT420 Constr Project Scheduling
  • Credits: 4
  • AND
  • Wentworth Class(es): MGMT418 Management Law
  • Credits: 4

Here, three classes from the previous school are combined to give credit for two Wentworth classes, based on the content and credit hours.

  • External Class(es): CLAS224 Greek Mythology
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): ECON121 International Economy
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): POLI101 American Politics AND
  • Credits: 3
  • AND
  • External Class(es): POLI111 Comparative Politics
  • Credits: 3
     
  • Wentworth Class(es): HUEL4XX Humanities Elective Equivalent AND
  • Credits: 4
  • AND
  • Wentworth Class(es): SSEL4XX Social Science Elective Equivalent (2)
  • Credits: 8

In this case, several classes from the previous institution are combined to create multiple equivalent Wentworth courses, which will count towards the humanities and social science degree requirement. Note that where multiple equivalencies of the same type are given, they are listed together.
