Transfer Credit Application Process for Current Students

Students planning to take courses elsewhere for transfer toward the Connecticut College degree must complete the Transfer Credit Application Form. Pre-approval of all transfer credit is required. Courses must be offered at accredited institutions of higher education.

The form must be signed by the student's adviser. The class dean's signature is always required. 

Students planning on transferring courses that are offered online*, or those that will count toward General Education/Modes of Inquiry or for the major or minor must also seek the approval of the appropriate department or program.

All Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Astronomy, and Geophysics courses always require departmental approval, even if the course will only be used for general credit. *Please note that approval of online courses is at the sole discretion of the department/program; not all departments/programs approve online courses.  

To obtain credit once the coursework is completed:

  • Request that an official final transcript be sent directly to the attention of the Registrar's office via mail or to degree@conncoll.edu.
  • If the transcript and transfer credit application are on file, the course(s) will be evaluated and posted by the end of the drop/add period in the next fall or spring semester in which you enroll at Connecticut College.
  • Transcripts received by the Registrar's office during the semester will be evaluated and posted within two weeks of receipt, provided that a transfer credit application is on file.
  • Course exceptions will be applied once the credit has been posted.

All grades and credits earned at the host institution are posted to the Connecticut College transcript and included in the student's GPA. This includes all courses taken while on Study Away. Once credit is posted, it will not be removed from the student's academic record.
