Transfer Credit Policies
Regionally Accredited Institutions
Semester hour credit will be granted based on the following criteria:
Students transferring credit from a quarter system of study will receive 3/4 credit.
Transfer credit may be granted for courses at non-accredited or proprietary schools with a grade of “C-“ or better. (Certain divisions require higher grade levels.) If allowed, this credit is granted at 2/3 credit.
Transfer Credit Applied Toward Graduation Requirements
At least 18 hours in the major field and the last 30 hours must be taken at Bethel University in order to earn a baccalaureate degree. For the associate degree, the student must complete at least 9 hours in the area of concentration and the last 18 hours at Bethel.
Transferring English Credit
Students who have passed an ENGL 101 or its equivalent at a regionally accredited institution will be given credit for Written Communication II (ENGL 101) at Bethel. Students wishing to transfer in a composition course for Written Communication III must have passed a course that included a major research paper. Courses without the research paper component may be transferred for ENGL 102 credit by taking ENGL102R Research Writing II at Bethel.
International Baccalaureate Higher level courses will be honored by Bethel University for scores of 5 or above, with a maximum number of 30 credit hours total. Each department will determine how much credit is to be granted and which Bethel courses are equivalent. No credit may be given for non-diploma Standard level courses.
