Transfer Credits

Transfer Credit

At Woodmont College, our goal is to help our students succeed and complete their degrees in the most efficient way. A student can transfer up to 75% of the required credits for an undergraduate degree at Woodmont College. Students may transfer credits from other institutions or via proficiency examinations. Transfer credit can be used to satisfy either a major or general education requirement or elective.

General Transfer Credit Policies

  • The final grade for each potential transfer course must be a ‘C-’ grade or higher. 
  • The transfer course cannot duplicate or overlap other transfer or required Woodmont College courses. 
  • Students can transfer up to 90 credits towards a bachelor’s degree, and up to 45 credits towards an associate’s degree.. 
  • Within the major, transfer credit is only applied to lower-level courses.
  • A maximum of 49% of major courses can originate from transfer credits.
  • A maximum of 20 credits per semester can be transferred.
  • Computer courses can be transferred if they were completed within five years of student’s attendance at Woodmont College. 

For approved transfer credit to be awarded, students must submit an official transcript that indicates all of the following information for each course: 

  • Course codes or numbers 
  • Course titles or descriptions 
  • Final grades earned 
  • Course credits earned 

To maintain the academic integrity of the degree, Woodmont College may request course descriptions and syllabi from the student in order to verify that the requested transfer credit is appropriate for transfer. If not included in the transcript, Woodmont College also may ask for the credit hour calculation.

U.S. Based Institution Transfer Credits

Students transferring credits from a US based educational institution must submit a transcript originating from an institution accredited by an association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Judaic Studies courses may be transferred from faith-based institutions such as Yeshivot and seminaries (see Faith-based Program Credit Transfer).

  • Students who completed a general education component in their first degree are exempt from Woodmont College’s general education program requirements EXCEPT for the three credits in Ethics. A Bachelor of Talmudic Law (BTL) is not considered a first degree for general education exemptions.  Students who have earned a BTL must fulfill general education requirements when pursuing a second degree at Woodmont College.
  • Students who wish to pursue a second bachelor’s and a master’s degree simultaneously must apply and be admitted to each program separately. Graduate coursework may not be applied to the second bachelor’s degree.

 

Articulation Agreements

Woodmont College students often transfer college credit from other institutions of higher education or from institutions whose courses have been recognized by a college credit recommendation service. Articulation agreements lay out a transfer plan between Woodmont College and the other institutions. They help students by ensuring all completed classes (credits) taken at other institutions transfer smoothly into Woodmont College’s degree requirements and show a clear pathway for continued advancement. Woodmont College has articulation agreements with the most common institutions found on student transcripts. The articulation agreements include a clear table identifying which courses will transfer and which requirement each course will fulfill. Students can review the articulation agreement and choose courses with confidence that credit will transfer.

Why do articulation agreements matter? 

Articulation agreements streamline the transfer process for everyone involved. This helps to alleviate the stress surrounding the application process, the credit transfer process, and several other issues students might encounter when applying to a baccalaureate program.
