Information on Transfer Credit
Transfer credit courses taken in residence at another college may be granted providing the student remains in good standing at that college and subject to the following limitations. Generally, courses approved for transfer carry letter grades and contribute to the student's Welch College grade-point average (g.p.a.). In the event that the transferring college utilizes a quality point system differing from that of Welch College, all quality points awarded will be converted to the system at Welch College.
