Requirements

 

  • Students have the ability to transfer a maximum of seventy-five (75) credits to Chestnut Hill College and must complete a minimum of forty-five (45) credits at Chestnut Hill in order to earn a bachelor's degree from the College.
  • A maximum of fifteen (15) credits from Advanced Placement, Challenge, or CLEP may be included among the 75 credits transferred to Chestnut Hill College.
  • Ordinarily, students are required to take their last year (senior year) of course work at Chestnut Hill College; transfer credits are not accepted from community or two-year colleges once a student has achieved senior status (84 credits).
  • Under ordinary circumstances, matriculating students are not permitted to take courses in the major field at other institutions. Exceptions are permitted for study abroad and for attendance at SSJ/CSJ Consortium Schools.
  • Transfer credits, other than those earned at LaSalle University or SEPCHE institutions, may not be earned during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students who wish to take courses at other colleges or universities during the summer, and who wish to transfer credits, must have the courses approved by their academic advisor and the Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies or the Director of Academic Advising. Transfer credit approval forms are available from the Director of Academic Advising. Upon completion of the course(s), an official transcript should be sent to the Registrar of Chestnut Hill College.
  • Although transfer credits are added to the total number of credits earned, they are not included in the student's cumulative GPA unless they are earned at LaSalle University or at a SEPCHE institution during the spring and fall semesters only.
  • Credits earned while studying abroad are not included in the cumulative GPA except as part of an official program sponsored by the College.
