Transfer of Credits
Chestnut Hill College will accept up to 75 transfer credits provided the courses meet the criteria outlined below. Regardless of the number of credits transferred to the College, students must complete a minimum of 45 academic credits at Chestnut Hill College in order to earn a degree. Students must also meet all applicable Core and Major Requirements as outlined in the catalog, which may require them to complete more than 45 academic credits.
In order for a course to be accepted in transfer, it must meet the following criteria:
- The student earned a grade of C (2.0) or better;
- An official transcript has been received; and
- The course was completed within ten years prior to Chestnut Hill College admission or readmission.
These courses are evaluated on an individual basis; only the credit is transferred and grades for these courses are not calculated into the cumulative GPA. An additional review is required for any course taken more than ten years prior to admission. Some departments may require a review if the courses were taken fewer than ten years prior to admission to Chestnut Hill College. The individual department will make final decisions regarding the allocation of credits. Students may be required to provide course descriptions and/or syllabi.
