Why consider transferring to Nichols? Read what other transfer students have to say . . .
"I transferred to Nichols after my first year of college in order to find a more interactive student atmosphere. Nichols gave me the hands-on experience that I could not have received at a bigger university. One main benefit that I will always carry with me is the professionalism that the professors taught us."
Kaitlyn Dibuono, ’11, BSBA, MBA, Faculty Associate
"When I came on campus, I realized that this is where I belonged. I appreciated the personal attention the admissions staff gave me. They were absolutely amazing and made the transfer process so easy.
Karrie Gorman, ’14, Economics major
We’re here to help you achieve your goal of building a meaningful career. That’s why we make it easy for students to transfer in from a two-year (or another four-year) college and apply their previous work towards a Nichols degree.
As a transfer student, you’ll follow the same application process as first-year students. You will also submit official transcripts of all previous college or university work attempted, whether or not you plan to transfer the credits.
If you attend a community college in Massachusetts, transferring credits could be even simpler thanks to our articulation agreements.
Nichols College offers both academic scholarships and need-based grants to any eligible transfer student. To be eligible for an academic scholarship, the applicant must be applying from a regionally accredited two- or four-year college or university and have maintained at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. If the applicant has completed fewer than 24 credit hours of college work, the GPA will be averaged with the overall high school GPA. Students applying for need-based financial aid who are filling out the FAFSA may also qualify for an additional transfer grant between $2,000 and $4,000, depending on need. Students must have completed at least 12 credit hours of college work to qualify for the transfer grant.
Course Equivalency Guide*
Nichols College has partnered with collegetransfer.net to provide prospective transfer students with a quick and easy way to plan ahead. Our course equivalency guide allows students to see how their courses from previous institutions may transfer in based upon our historical data. We are consistently updating our equivalency database, so just because a course or institution may not be on our list, does not mean it will not transfer in.
*This guide is simply for informational purposes only. Final decisions about acceptance of course credit will be made by the registrar’s office in accordance with the guidelines listed below.
Courses for transfer credit are evaluated on the following guidelines:
Upon admission, copies of your transcript are sent to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation. The Registrar will send you notification of credits transferred.
Nichols College maintains cooperative relationships with select two-year colleges to facilitate the transfer process and the award of credit for prior college-level work.
