Transfer of Credit Policy
New England Institute of Technology will accept transfer credits from another post-secondary institution, regionally accredited by an agency approved by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), which meet the following conditions:
- An official transcript from the institution at which the coursework was completed must be submitted to the Enrollment Management Office.
- The course(s) for which transfer credit is requested are equivalent in both credit hours and content to the theory and/or lab course(s) offered at NEIT. The student may be required to provide college catalog descriptions from the original institution for equivalency to be determined.
- Coursework in general education not leading to a degree will be evaluated for current relevancy; therefore, math, science, and technical courses must have been completed within 3 years of enrollment at NEIT while all other courses must have been completed within 10 years of enrollment at NEIT.
- Coursework related to the curriculum in a specific major must be evaluated by the relevant Department Chair.
- At the discretion of the Department Chair, courses that are not equivalent in both credit hours and content of required courses within an academic major, may be substituted for/accepted as technical electives.
- A student who has earned an associate degree will be considered to have met all associate-level general education requirements, unless any course(s) are prerequisites to coursework within the academic major.
- A student who has earned a bachelor’s degree will be considered to have met all bachelor-level general education requirements, unless any course(s) are prerequisites to coursework within the academic major.
- A maximum of 46 quarter (30 semester) transfer credits may be accepted for an associate degree program, 58 quarter (38 semester) transfer credits for an Applied Technical Studies associate degree program, 42 quarter (28 semester) transfer credits for a bachelor’s degree program, and 4 quarter (3 semester) transfer credits for a master’s degree program. No transfer credits are accepted for doctoral programs.
