If you've graduated with an associate's degree from a regionally accredited college, you can apply credits you already earned towards a bachelor's degree. Check out our Transfer Dictionary to learn how courses from other institutions transfer to UMass Lowell.
Did you know that we will accept up to 90 credits towards your bachelor's degree? That's 75 percent of your degree! Your credits don't expire, so even if it's been a while since you earned them we can help you make the most of them.
If you have earned college credits outside the U.S., don't let them go to waste. World Education Services (WES) will review your credits so that we can apply them towards your degree at UMass Lowell. Note: Foreign language transcripts require a certified English translation.
Credits earned while serving your country are documented by the military, so don't forget to ask if they will help you earn your degree faster. All military transcripts will be reviewed by our transfer credit office.
