Transferring to Newbury

Did you know that about 30% of all college students in the US transfer at least once? Maybe you’re currently at a school that just doesn’t feel like the right fit for you. Or maybe you started off at a community college and are now ready to pursue a four-year degree. Maybe you already have a degree, but are looking to complete a second program that’s more career-focused. Whatever the case may be, we welcome transfers at Newbury College. That’s why transfer applicants have their own Transfer Admissions Counselor.

We know that every transfer student has a unique situation. But that also means you can bring a unique perspective to our school, and that you have your own unique story too. We can’t wait to hear yours.


Newbury College will accept up to 75 transfer credits towards a bachelor degree and 30 credits towards an associate degree. All students must complete a minimum of 45 credits at Newbury College to obtain a baccalaureate degree. The College will accept transfer credits from:

  • Regionally accredited, post-secondary institutions
  • The College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
  • The United States Armed Forces Institute,
  • The Advancement Placement Examination Program (AP) of the College Entrance Examination Board,
  • The International Baccalaureate Examination Program (IB higher level),
  • Articulation agreements with local secondary schools,
  • The American Council on Education (ACE)
Once a transfer student is accepted to Newbury, a Transfer Credit Evaluation will be completed by the Registrar's Office to determine which courses may transfer. Please note that not all courses accepted for transfer can be applied to every degree program.
For more information about transferring credits, AP/IB exams, CLEP, and other transferable credits, please see our College Catalog or contact the Registrar's Office for our full Transfer Policy.

Newbury also maintains articulation agreements with several institutions. Please contact the Registrar's Office at 617.730.7110 or registrar@newbury.edu for the most up to date list.
