For Transfer Students
If you are considering transferring to Elizabethtown College, you probably have some questions like the ones below. Please contact the Office of Admissions for information on how to apply to the College.
A: Yes. A WES credential evaluation helps us understand and verify degrees, diplomas, and/or courses earned outside the U.S. For more information, please visit the World Education Services website.
A: Up to 64 credits from a regionally accredited two-year institution and up to 84 credits from a regionally accredited four-year institution can be transferred following evaluation and approval by the Office of Registration and Records. Please note that only those credits being used to fulfill graduation requirements are posted to the transcript.
A: A preliminary evaluation of your transfer credits will be done upon acceptance to the College. Final evaluations are completed after all official transcripts are received and students have deposited.
A: As soon as the matriculation deposit is received by the College, a letter is sent to the student describing the registration process. Students need to meet with an advisor (in person, by email or phone) to discuss appropriate courses for the student's first semester at Elizabethtown. Students are able to register themselves for classes through the college's campus web system (JayWeb).
A: Many liberal arts courses, for example History or English, are accepted regardless of how long ago they were completed. Education and Computer Science courses are just a few of the areas that, due to changes in methods and/or technology, may not be accepted if required for a major. The academic department governing the major requirements will make this determination.
A: No. Only credits transfer to Elizabethtown College. Grades for transfer courses are not posted on the permanent record card, and students begin their studies at Elizabethtown with credits but no GPA.
A: Students approved through Admissions with an earned associate’s degree, consisting of at least 40 corresponding general education credits from a regionally accredited college or university, will be recognized as meeting all of the requirements of the Elizabethtown College Core Curriculum with full junior standing. The foregoing provision does not supersede curricular prerequisites or departmental program requirements established in the College catalog. Nor does it exclude the student from completing the signature learning requirement, or residency requirements, for completion of a bachelor’s degree.
A: No. All incoming students will be invited to orientation. Incoming students can find information about Orientation on a dedicated web site.
