Check out the specific transfer application deadlines for the campuses to which you plan to apply.


The awarding of transfer credit for courses taken at other institutions prior to admission is
assessed by working with a Student Services Coordinator. The dean or designee of the
appropriate college determines how credits will transfer.

  • A grade of C- is the minimum acceptable grade for receiving transfer credit.
  • Transfer credits are recorded on the student's permanent UMass Dartmouth record.
  • There is no limit to the number of credits that may be transferred to UMass Dartmouth.
  • Students are required to complete 45 credit hours at UMass Dartmouth to complete a
    bachelor’s degree.
