Transfer of Credit

Upon receipt of a transfer applicant’s transcript and course syllabi, the Admission Committee serves as the liaison to Babson’s faculty who determine a course’s transferability. In assessing courses for credit, faculty ensure that the course is both at an equal level of rigor to Babson’s curriculum and that the course is similar in content to those offered at Babson. Credit is awarded only for faculty approved courses in which the student has earned a grade of “C” (2.0/4.0) or better. Transfer students must complete at least two years of study at Babson in order to earn their degrees, therefore, the maximum number of transfer credits Babson will award is 65.
