How to transfer credits

The transfer process is very simple and only consists of 4 key steps. Our representatives will guide you along the way to ensure that we complete the process successfully.
  1. Enroll in a course

    Enroll in one of our 6 for-credit courses. Provide the name of the school you are attending and the required information for Becker College to transfer the transcript towards your degree. Once you are enrolled, you will receive your Becker College student credential to Moodle where you can see all your course and instructor information and start learning.

  2. Request for pre-approval from your school

    As soon as you’ve enrolled in any of our classes, notify your school with the associated course code and syllabus any time before the start of class and up to 3 weeks after classes begin. We will provide you with an email template that you can use to contact your school.

  3. Begin your classes

    It typically takes your school 1-2 weeks to approve the transfer credit, and depending on the time of year, it could take as long as 2-3 weeks. During this time, just make sure to keep up with your weekly lectures and ensure that you are completing all quizzes and assignments on time.

  4. Complete course and receive transcript

    Upon completion of the course with a grade of C or better, you will receive an unofficial transcript from Becker College. This will detail the course you took with us, the grade you received and the semester in which the course took place.

    To have the official transcript sent to your school, login using your Becker College student credentials, follow the instructions to submit your request for a transcript and your school will receive the official transcript from Becker college within 1-2 weeks, and complete the transfer credit process.

Student ratings

I had no idea what to expect when I first enrolled in this course. However, after the first class, I was certain that I had one of the best teachers around. I was never really strong in Chemistry but the instructor explained everything in a clear and approachable way.
Stephanie G.
I wanted to find less expensive options to take an additional course while I was working part-time. The experience and quality of teaching was outstanding. I only wish that they offered more courses in my area of specialization.
Matt S.
I wanted to find a way to get an extra credit in order to satisfy my elective requirements. I ended up spending way less than what I usually pay for a course and the instructor was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had.
