Credit Evaluation Process

Transfer credit is awarded for a course at a previous college/university if the student has earned a grade of C or higher, and there is an equivalent course offered here at Saint Anselm College. Up to 64 credits can be accepted in the transfer process. A student must complete a half of the courses required for their major while at Saint Anselm College.

Saint Anselm College maintains a transfer equivalency database so that students may check to see if a course they have taken at their current or previous institution has been evaluated for transfer credit. This database does not reflect all courses that may transfer, just courses that have been previously evaluated. 

Preliminary credit evaluations are completed for all transfer students admitted to Saint Anselm College. You will receive a copy of your credit evaluation with your offer of admission or shortly thereafter. An official credit evaluation is completed once you enroll at the college. In order for the Registrar's Office to complete your official credit evaluation, all final transcripts must be submitted.

If you have any questions about credit evaluations, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
