Transfer Students


Transfer Admission to Elms College

We welcome transfer students at Elms College. They bring fresh perspectives and vitality to campus and are greeted warmly by faculty, staff, and fellow students. We have articulation and transfer agreements with many area colleges to make your transition as seamless as possible.

You Can Transfer Your Credits

You can transfer up to 75 credits from other institutions towards a bachelor's degree, and 30 credits towards an associates' degree for 100-level or higher courses completed within the last 10 years and for which students have achieved a "C" grade or better.

Elms College evaluates the transcripts of all transfer students for content in the liberal arts to determine if they satisfy the intent of the college's core requirements as well as the requirements of your intended major. We also work with students to review their coursework individually. Courses required for the nursing major must have a grade of "B-" to be accepted for transfer credit.

We Offer Transfer Scholarships

Elms College offers Merit-Based Scholarships to full-time transfer students. All students, once accepted to the college, are automatically reviewed for one of the available scholarships. Visit our Scholarships page for more information.
