Changing schools doesn’t have to mean starting over. Whether you’re graduating from community college, changing four-year institutions, or looking for a fresh start, Suffolk is ready to make your transfer as seamless as possible.

We’ll Work With You

In light of the challenges posed by COVID-19, many post-secondary schools are now grading coursework on a pass/fail basis. Suffolk has therefore decided to accept courses with pass grades for transfer credit for the spring 2020 semester. If your institution offers this option, please rest assured that your coursework will count here.

Reach out to a Suffolk University Transfer Admissions counselor for help with applying, financial aid, on-the-spot decisions, events, and more. Every student receives a transfer credit evaluation upon their acceptance–you'll know what credits will transfer and what is still required for you to graduate.
