or universities outside Harvard University. Only pre-approved courses with grades of C or higher from regionally-accredited institutions are eligible
for transfer. ALB candidates can transfer a maximum of 8 studio arts credits. e Oﬃce of ALB Advising and Program Administration will accept
up to a combined maximum of 16 credits for any course work completed by an examination, such as College Level Examination Program (CLEP),
or that is approved by American Council on Education (ACE).
