Transfer Credit Guidelines
No more than 15 units (60 semester hours) of transfer credit (including a maximum of eight
(8) AP, IB, or GCE A-level units: see below for additional information) will be applied toward
the Beloit degree. Work done elsewhere will be recorded in equivalent credit units (one
Beloit unit equals 4 semester or 6 quarter hours). Only courses with a “C” or better grade
may be considered for transfer.
All academic work on the college level and of a liberal arts nature, undertaken at other
accredited institutions, and successfully completed with a grade of "C" or better, must
become part of the student's permanent record at Beloit. Official transcripts of such work
must be presented at the time of application for admission.
Transfer credit will apply only toward the total number of units required for graduation.
Normally at least half of the courses used toward fulfillment of major requirements must be
completed at Beloit College. Determination of the number of transfer credits used toward
major or minor requirements is made by the chair of the appropriate department, in
consultation with the registrar. Students who expect to use transfer credits to fulfill major
requirements should consult with the major department. This consultation should occur at
the earliest possible time.
With advance permission of the advisor and the registrar, enrolled students in good
standing are permitted to take designated courses at other accredited colleges and
universities, and to transfer credit earned in such courses to Beloit College without
payment of extra fees to Beloit. Beloit degree requirements and any field of concentration
restrictions concerning transfer credit must be observed. The Transfer Credit
Authorization Form is available in the Registrar’s Office or see link on this page to the on-
Grades from transfer courses will neither be recorded on the transcript nor included in the
Beloit grade point average.
No more than 3 units of distance learning course work (e.g. extension, correspondence, or
online) will be allowed toward the degree. Enrolled students seeking transfer credit for
such work must secure the prior approval of the advisor, the relevant department, and the
No more than two units of credit may be transferred during the senior year, except with the
approval of the Academic Performance Committee.
fficial transcripts of such work should be presented as soon as possible after completion
of the work.
