FAQ - Transfer Admission

Left Nav

What kinds of transcripts are acceptable?

All transcripts must be official copies sent from all prior institutions attended.

Do I have to submit ACT or SAT scores?

No. ACT or SAT scores are no longer required as part of the admission process. If you have taken the ACT or SAT and are proud of your score, we still encourage you to submit it to Berry. Submitted test scores (or lack of test scores) will not negatively impact your admission and will not be used in awarding merit-based scholarships.

I have an Associates Degree. Can I still apply to Berry?

Yes, students with Associates Degrees can apply to Berry College.

When will I find out if I am accepted?

Once your application file is complete, you will hear from us within approximately four weeks.

I was previously accepted to Berry College, but did not enroll. Do I need to complete another application?

Yes, students who were accepted but did not attend will have to submit a separate application. 

Transfer Credit EVALUATION

Which of my courses from other institutions will transfer?

Transferology is a tool you can use to see how coursework from other colleges and universities typically transfers to Berry College. The list of courses in Transferology is not comprehensive; we are continually updating Transferology with more courses and institutions. The information in Transferology is provided only as a guide. An official course-by-course evaluation of your specific transfer credit will be completed when you are admitted to Berry.

How to use the Transferology:

  • Create your free Transferology account. 
  • On the “Will My Courses Transfer” page under “Courses” enter in the information for the college or university where you received your current credits. Select the term and year you took those courses and then search for your courses by academic department.
  • You will see a list of your current courses in the “My Courses” section on the right side of the screen, click “Search for Matches” to see how your courses will transfer to Berry College.
  • Can't Find Your Course in Transferology? We transfer some courses that are not yet listed in Transferology. If you cannot find a course, it just means we have not evaluated it yet. We may reach out for the syllabus of courses we have not evaluated in the past. Once you are admitted, we will evaluate all your courses and let you know how they apply to your degree requirements.
ACCESS Transferology
