Transferring programs

In most cases, a student may transfer from one academic program to another, provided he or she is in good academic standing. Students considering a transfer of programs are encouraged to consult a college office advisor.

Within BGSU
Other main campus students, including pre-major advising students, wishing to transfer from another college’s program (e.g., College of Business Administration) to a program in the College of Arts and Sciences must consult with an advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences to review eligibility and degree requirements. Based on this consultation, the college transfer process may be initiated in the College of Arts and Sciences with the completion of the College Transfer Form.

The transfer process for a BGSU Firelands student follows the procedures for the other main college campuses listed above. Firelands students are encouraged to consult with an advisor in the college office on a regular basis. Advisors from main campus colleges travel to BGSU Firelands each semester to help facilitate such interaction.

From other institutions
Students wishing to transfer from another institution into a program housed in the College of Arts and Sciences must first be admitted to the University (contact the Office of Admissions). Typically, students are required to attend an initial orientation and registration event which occurs prior to the beginning of each term. Students will meet with an advisor to review degree requirements at that time. It is important that transcripts from previously attended institutions be evaluated by the BGSU Office of Registration and Records prior to the orientation and registration event. After such evaluation has occurred, advisors in the college can help determine the applicability of transfer credit toward BGSU degree requirements.
