As a transfer-friendly institution, our staff will work one-on-one with you to ensure that the transfer process is as seamless as possible. Through the years, we have learned that some reasons students transfer include:

  1. They want to stay local or close to home;
  2. They were lost in the crowd at a larger institution;
  3. They wanted to switch academic programs and realized that the creative offerings at Five Towns College were what they loved;
  4. They felt the warmth from a small institution and it seemed more supportive; and/or
  5. They wanted a small college at a reasonable tuition rate that their families could afford.

College Transfer Credit Requirements

  • College credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions or in the Regents College Degrees Program with a grade of “C” or higher may be considered for transfer credit.

  • Entering freshman who have completed college coursework while still in high school are required to have their official college transcripts sent to the Admissions Office in order to be considered for credit. Credit is awarded for grades of “C” or higher.
  • In addition, if an applicant has attended any of the schools/colleges that Five Towns College has an Articulation Agreement with, there is a smooth transfer of credits as well.

Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement (AP) credit will be granted by Five Towns College to qualified students based on a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement Examination. Official score reports must be forwarded to the Admissions Office from the College Board in order to be granted credit.

Credits for IB (International Baccalaureate) Programs

Students who graduate from a High School International Baccalaureate Program may request and be granted transfer credit for courses completed and for which they have received a grade of at least a “B.” The transfer credit request must be made in advance of admission to the College. Decisions on such transfer credit requests are made on a case-by-case basis. The high school at which the course was taken must be accredited by a federally authorized regional accrediting organization (e.g., the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges).

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives students an opportunity to demonstrate prior learning and to earn credit for that knowledge. Five Towns College allows matriculated, high-achieving students to use the CLEP Program to move past introductory-level coursework and to move onto more advanced and challenging courses.

Other College Credits

Students who have taken college classes while in High School through another institution may also have earned college credits to be considered by Five Towns College. Official transcripts of those credits should be forwarded to the Admissions Office for decisions on a case-by-case basis as well.
