Transfer Credit Guide

This guide was developed to assist anyone interested in how courses at other institutions may transfer into Wentworth.

The guide reflects actual transfer equivalencies awarded to students based on their academic record at their previous institution, the requirements of their degree program at Wentworth, and Wentworth’s transfer credit policy.

If a course has not been previously reviewed for transfer credit, there will not be an equivalency listed for it in this guide. The course will be reviewed for transfer credit during the transfer admission process.

HOW TO USE THE GUIDE

Transfer equivalencies are arranged by school in alphabetical order. Schools with names beginning with “The University of,” “College of,” or similar phrasing are listed under the unique portion of their name (for example, the University of Rhode Island is listed under R). Due to the size of the guide, the easiest way to find your school will be to use the search function of your browser or document reader.

Due to the difference in program requirements, equivalencies primarily used by the College of Professional and Continuing Education are listed in italics. These equivalencies will typically not be used for full-time day degree programs.

The actual transfer equivalency will appear in one of four forms:

                One to One- a single course at your previous school is matched up with a single Wentworth course. It will appear like this:

External Class(es)

Credits

Wentworth Class(es)

Credits

EN101 English I

4

ENGL100 English I

4

In this case, the external course EN101 was accepted as credit for the Wentworth course ENGL100.

                One to Equivalent – a single course at your previous school is used to give credit for a course equivalent where there is no specific Wentworth course that matches it:

External Class(es)

Credits

Wentworth Class(es)

Credits

PLS113 American Politics

3

SSEL1XX Social Science Elective Equivalent

3

In this case, there is no Wentworth course that specifically matches the American Politics course taken at the previous school, so equivalent credit is awarded. This credit will satisfy the degree requirement without having to match directly to an existing Wentworth course.

                Many to One – in some cases, more than one class may be combined to grant credit for one Wentworth course. This is typically done where the credit hours or course content of the Wentworth class are spread among more than one class from the previous school:

External Class(es)

Credits

Wentworth Class(es)

Credits

MAC1105 College Algebra AND

MAC1114 Trigonometry

3

3

MATH205 College Math I

4

In this case, two math courses from the previous school are combined to meet the credit hours and content of one Wentworth course. In this case, the extra credits are not awarded elsewhere.

                Many to Many – here, several classes from the previous school are combined to give credit for more than one Wentworth course. This is often done where courses are offered in sequence (such as math courses) or where the course content and credit hours can be combined into several Wentworth courses or equivalents (often with humanities and social science courses):

Here, three classes from the previous school are combined to give credit for two Wentworth classes, based on the content and credit hours.

HUEL4XX Humanities Elective Equivalent AND

SSEL4XX Social Science Elective Equivalent (2)

In this case, several classes from the previous institution are combined to create multiple equivalent Wentworth courses, which will count towards the humanities and social science degree requirement. Note that where multiple equivalencies of the same type are given, they are listed together.
