Transferability of Credits

The acceptance of the transfer of credits from Westfield Business School is up to the institution
receiving the credits. Students who plan to transfer credits earned at WESTFIELD to another school

should contact the institution to which the student seeks transfer before enrolling in order to
determine if credits will be accepted. The granting of transfer credit is within the sole discretion of
the receiving institution.

It is the policy of this institution to accept transfer credits for up to 6 semester credit hours from any
program. Students must submit official transcripts for work completed at another institution in order
for the credit to be considered for transfer. Credit transfer from other institutions is reserved to
those students who have successfully completed courses that are comparable in content, quality and
scope to those offered at WBS. WBS accepts transfer of credit only from courses whose course
descriptions are equivalent to WBS’s course descriptions. The minimum grade for a course to be
accepted for Transfer Credits should be B.
