Transfer Credit Evaluation Process
We understand the complexity and importance of the transfer process and work to make the transition as seamless as possible. All courses completed at an accredited post-secondary institution with a grade “C-“or higher are considered transferable to New England College. Exceptions may be made for students who have completed an Associate Degree, allowing up to 12 credits of grades recorded as a “D” to be transferred. For more detailed information, please review our Transfer Policy
In addition to the CC2NEC Automatic Acceptance Program for Community College students, transfer agreements are in place with a variety of schools.
