Transfer Credit Policy

Principle of Equivalent Course Load

In general, courses accepted for transfer credit must be similar to those taught at Brandeis. Courses that, in our judgment, are inappropriate to a Brandeis University degree, carry fewer than two semester hours credit or carry a grade lower than C-minus (B-minus in summer school) are excluded from consideration.

For the BA/BS degrees, Brandeis requires 32 semester courses and a minimum academic residency of four fall/spring semesters, exclusive of Brandeis Summer School. Your transfer credit, expressed in semester courses, appears in the top right corner of your evaluation sheet. Since Brandeis does not measure progress toward the degree in terms of "semester hours" or "quarter hours," units such as these are converted to "semester courses" according to the formula below:
