Transfer Credits

College of Communication Policy

Students wishing to take courses outside Boston University must first have these courses evaluated and pre-approved by the corresponding BU school or department. Communication courses cannot be taken outside of the College of Communication for major requirements, but can count as electives toward graduation.

A minimum grade of C is needed for transfer. Credit is not awarded for courses completed on a pass/fail basis. Please see the Transfer Credit Approval Form on the Student Services website, or go to COM Room 123 for more information and specific details.

Any courses counting for fewer than 2.0 credits cannot be transferred in.
