Transferring Credits from Another Institution

BU Wheelock may accept transfer credits into a graduate program if those credits have not already been used for a completed degree. After you are admitted, you can transfer credits for evaluation. For more information, view our full transfer credit policy.

Fieldwork at BU Wheelock

BU Wheelock students routinely participate in field experiences as part of their program curriculum and requirements. Most field sites require criminal background checks to determine students’ eligibility for participation. History of a criminal record may disqualify you from participating in these required experiences, which in turn may impede the successful completion of your degree program.
