Transfer of Credit Web Application Tool

Transfer of Credit Requests & Approval Online Tool

Accessible through MyWellesley >> Administrivia >> Transfer of Credit Requests & Approval - this application manages requests for transfer of credit. Students fill out forms, then the forms are assigned to the appropriate Academic Department for approval. Credit is posted for approved courses that were completed successfully with a grade of C or above once a copy of an official transcript has been received by the Registrar's Office.

Students must fill out a form for:

  • Any Brandeis / Babson course except Babson’s Intro to Financial Accounting, which is pre-approved for credit

For Faculty Responsible for Reviewing Transfer of Credit Requests

Typically Academic Department Chairs & Program Directors are responsible for evaluating Transfer of Credit requests. They may, however, choose another faculty member from their department to be the Transfer Credit Coordinator. Please let the Registrar's Office know if there is a change in the faculty responsible by emailing registrar@wellesley.edu.
