Steps to Enroll
  1. Complete a Transfer Admission Application.
  2. Submit official copies of academic records from all high schools, colleges, or universities previously attended. Each copy must bear the stamp or seal and signature of a school official attesting that it is a true copy of the original.
  3. Download, complete, and submit a Statement of Good Standing. The Student Life or Dean of Student Office at the current college and/or university you are attending will need to complete a portion of this form.
  4. Review our Transfer Credit Policy. (For instance, credit will be granted only for a grade of “C-“or better.)
Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission:

  • You must have a minimum of 12 (post high school) college level credit hours. If you have less than 12 college level credit hours, an admission decision will be made based on a review of both your college and high school coursework, along with SAT or ACT scores.
  • We must receive an official transcript to conduct an official review of your college courses. An unofficial review may be conducted with an unofficial transcript but a student cannot be guaranteed transfer credits without an official transcript review.
  • If you’re applying to transfer mid-term, please submit courses that are in progress along with mid-term grades if available. A conditional decision may be made prior to final grades being submitted at the end of the term. Once a final official transcript is submitted, and grades are deemed to be at a transferable level, a student may be fully accepted to Bethany College.
