At Marist, our reputation for delivering a high-quality education is second-to-none, and for students transferring credits from a community college, we make it easier than ever to enroll. Here’s what you need to know about transferring credits to Marist.

How to Transfer Credits from a Community College to Marist College

A large factor for all college transfer students is the ability to transfer credits to a new school. Marist College awards transfer credits if the courses you have already taken were taken at an accredited college or university, and you earned a grade of “C” or higher. We then review the course level and material to decide if your academic credits are viable for transfer credits. You may transfer a maximum of 90 college credits towards your Marist Bachelor’s degree.
