Understanding your Transfer Credit Evaluation once submitted and reviewed:
"Babson Course Name" This column shows a Babson course name or type of requirement that corresponds with your previous course. Electives are one category you may see here. Electives are advanced management courses and general courses. Students need at least twenty elective credits to meet degree requirements.
"Babson Course Credits" Babson courses are four credits. Previous coursework for more or less credits will be accepted. Your Student Success Advisor will guide you on how to make up credits and/or where extra credits will count.
"Evaluation Status" This column will indicate the status of your course review with one of the following:
- Tentatively Accepted - Reviewed and assigned credits, but need final transcript before official
- Not Accepted at Babson
- This column may be blank due to: waiting for required information to begin review OR the review is in progress but not yet complete
Use your Tentatively Accepted courses for a sense of what will transfer and how.
