Transfer Students

Transfer students constitute a large and valuable component of the Anna Maria College community. Due to their educational, career, and geographic backgrounds, transfer students add a welcome diversity to the undergraduate population. Anna Maria accepts a large number of transfer students each semester.

1. Completed Application and Processing Fee
All students must submit an application
2. Academic Record
All transfer students must submit a final high school transcript. If students have completed ten or fewer college level courses, the high school record becomes an important part of the process. Transfer students must also submit official transcripts from all colleges or universities previously attended including courses currently in progress. The more college courses the student has completed, the greater the emphasis given to their college credentials.

3. College Official's Report
Each applicant for transfer admission to Anna Maria College must submit the College Official's Report to the Dean of Students or other appropriate official at the college or university of current attendance. Please note that this form is NOT an academic reference and must be given to the college official charged with maintenance of disciplinary records. An applicant not currently enrolled should have this form completed by the appropriate official at the college or university last attended.

4. Transfer Credits (Undergraduate Day)
Anna Maria College accepts transfer credits received from fully accredited colleges and universities. AMC will accept up to 75 transfer credits,and students must complete a minimum of 45 credits at Anna Maria College or within the Worcester Consortium of Colleges in order to earn a degree from AMC.

Anna Maria College generally grants transfer credit for courses taken at other colleges or universities that correspond to or are comparable with those offered at Anna Maria. Students must receive a grade of C- or better to receive transfer credit. The final decision regarding credits acceptable for transfer to Anna Maria College is made by the appropriate Academic Department. 

If you are accepted to Anna Maria College as a transfer student, you may request a preliminary transfer credit evaluation. Otherwise, you will be notified of your official transfer credits when you arrive on campus for new student orientation and meet with your academic advisor. 
Class standing is determined based on the number of transfer credits awarded according to the following breakdown:

0-30 credits = first-year standing
31-60 credits = sophomore standing
61-90 credits = junior standing
91-120 credits = senior standing
