Transfer Credit Policies

Regionally Accredited Institutions

Semester hour credit will be granted based on the following criteria:
  • Any grade of “C-” or better will transfer. Some programs require that only a grade of “C” or higher may be used for courses in the major.
  • Any grade of “D” will transfer from a regionally accredited (ABHE included) institution if the cumulative grade point average from that institution is a 2.0 or greater. A grade of “D” or higher may be used to meet Bethel Core requirements. The Registrar will determine which courses meet Bethel Core requirements.
  • Any course meeting the above grade guidelines, but not specific Bethel Core or major requirements, will have credit transferred as elective hours.

Students transferring credit from a quarter system of study will receive 3/4 credit.

Non-Accredited Institutions

Transfer credit may be granted for courses at non-accredited or proprietary schools with a grade of “C-“ or better. (Certain divisions require higher grade levels.) If allowed, this credit is granted at 2/3 credit.

Transfer Credit Applied Toward Graduation Requirements

At least 18 hours in the major field and the last 30 hours must be taken at Bethel University in order to earn a baccalaureate degree. For the associate degree, the student must complete at least 9 hours in the area of concentration and the last 18 hours at Bethel.

Transferring English Credit

Students who have passed an ENGL 101 or its equivalent at a regionally accredited institution will be given credit for Written Communication II (ENGL 101) at Bethel. Students wishing to transfer in a composition course for Written Communication III must have passed a course that included a major research paper. Courses without the research paper component may be transferred for ENGL 102 credit by taking ENGL102R Research Writing II at Bethel.

IB Policy

International Baccalaureate Higher level courses will be honored by Bethel University for scores of 5 or above, with a maximum number of 30 credit hours total. Each department will determine how much credit is to be granted and which Bethel courses are equivalent. No credit may be given for non-diploma Standard level courses.

If you have any questions about the official evaluation, feel free to contact the Registrar’s Office in the Huffman Administration Building, office 211 or call 574.807.7410.
