Transfer of Credits

Students may transfer a maximum of 90 credits to Unity College with a maximum of 40 elective credits and a maximum of 50 program requirements. Please note that students must earn a “C” or higher in order for the credit to be accepted on transfer.

Unity College does not accept credit for Physical Education (sports activities) coursework. Credit for prior experience is only awarded for work completed as part of a military program.

The Registrar will perform preliminary transfer credit evaluations for prospective transfer students. If the student wishes, the evaluation may be done during the campus visit and the student will have an opportunity to talk with the Registrar about the transfer process and necessary coursework to complete Unity College degree requirements.

Transfer Process

The student must have the Registrar from their college or university forward an official transcript of all coursework completed to the Admissions Office at Unity College. “Official” means that the transcript must be signed, have the school seal, and be in a sealed envelope. Once accepted, the student must meet with the Unity College Registrar and formally request that the credit be applied to the Unity student record. Consultation with the Director of Financial Aid is strongly recommended prior to the transfer of credit.

Students may transfer credit to Unity College from a regionally accredited institution.

Automatic Acceptance for Transfer Students

The Admissions Office at Unity College offers automatic acceptance to transfer students who meet the following criteria:
•          Have an Associate’s degree (60 credits) from an accredited institution.
