Transfer of Credits to Beacon

To receive transfer credits, transfer students are required to present official transcripts from the transfer institution(s). Catalog course descriptions or course syllabi may also be requested. Official documentation must be submitted prior to the end of the first academic term.

Transfer Requirements

Beacon College accepts credit only from regionally accredited institutions and programs and will not award credit based on training provided by non-collegiate institutions, professional certification, or experiential learning. Beacon College evaluates and accepts transfer credits on an individual basis.

  • Transfer credits may be considered for acceptance with a grade of (C) or better.
  • Transfer credits cannot exceed 30 credits for the A.A. degree or 90 credits for the B.A. degree.
  • Credits can only be awarded in areas offered within the current curriculum of Beacon College and must relate appropriately to the student’s educational program.
  • The College does award credit based on ETS advanced placement when the grade is equivalent to a (C) or above.

Beacon College reserves the right to deny credit for specific courses. Once the official transcript has been received, the transfer student’s academic advisor will review and evaluate the transcript to determine which course credits may be transferred to Beacon College and if they can be used toward program requirements, minor requirements, general education requirements, or elective credits. The Registrar will notify the student of credits accepted within five (5) days of receipt of the official transcript.

Application Process

The transfer process is very similar to what you would have experienced applying to colleges previously with one main difference: you will need to provide your college transcripts with your application.

Transfer students are invited to apply online or with the CommonApp.

Life at Beacon

One reason transfer students choose Beacon is our bright and sunny location in Central Florida. With warm weather and outdoor recreation throughout the academic year, many students who learn differently find better mental and physical health here in Leesburg. Our campus takes advantage of this location with scenic pocket parks and outdoor recreational spaces for students to hang out, meet friends, or do schoolwork.
