Transfer Admission

Transfer students are a welcome addition to Elms College bringing fresh perspectives and vitality to campus. You’ll be greeted warmly by faculty, staff, and fellow students.

Making the Most of Your Transfer Credits

We have articulation and transfer agreements with many area colleges to make your transition as seamless as possible. 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 you have achieved a “C” grade or better.

Elms College will evaluate your transcript 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 you to review your coursework individually. Courses required for the nursing major must have a grade of “B-” to be accepted for transfer credit.

Transfer Scholarships Available

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.
