How to transfer credits
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.
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.
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.
