Transfer Credit

Part-Time Evening Students

We accept transfer credit for many courses taken at accredited institutions for which a minimum grade of 2.0 (C) has been achieved. Courses are reviewed individually for similarity of content to Bentley courses and applicability of such courses to your intended program of study. To avoid repeating a course for which you may receive transfer credit, students with potential credit are encouraged to meet with an advisor before registering for their first Bentley course to receive a preliminary transfer evaluation. To initiate an official transfer evaluation, you should request that official transcripts be sent from the registrar of each previously attended institution to: Bentley University, Office of Academic Services, 175  Forest Street, Waltham, MA 02452-4705. 

Upper level business course taken at a school not accredited by the AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business may need to be validated in order to be transferred to a bachelor’s degree in a business discipline. 

Students required to validate a course may do so by: 

  • taking an appropriately designated sequential course and earning at least a 2.0 (C) grade; or
  • achieving a sufficient score in a specially prepared departmental validation examination.

There is no fee assessed for validation examinations, nor is there any fee beyond the normal tuition charge for sequential course validation.
