  • Does Bluefield State College accept credit from all Post Secondary Institutions?
    No, Bluefield State College only accepts credit from Regionally Accredited Institutions. International Transcripts (credit from institutions outside the US) should be evaluated by a recognized Transcript Evaluation Service prior to submission to Bluefield State College. Credit transferred from two year institutions (Community College, Junior College, etc) are required to meet all Residency Requirements, which includes a minimum of 56 hours from a four year bachelors level institution and a minimum of 32 hours from Bluefield State College must be satisfied

  • Will my grades transfer along with my credits?
    Both grades and credits from Regionally Accredited Institutions within the US will be accepted.  Passing grades from institutions outside of the US will be converted to a grade of “P”.

  • What do I do if I do not understand my transfer evaluation?
    Your advisor, the Dean of your program or the Registrar can meet and review your transfer evaluation with you.

  • If I attend another intuition to earn credits toward my degree at Bluefield State College, how can I be sure that the credits will transfer?
    Prior to enrolling at another institution, you must first complete a “Permission to Earn Credits At Another Institution (Transient) form and get the required signatures. With this approval, you are guaranteed that the credits will transfer and will be able to tell how the credits will be applied to your program.  Forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. Those students who fail to get proper, prior approval, are proceeding at their own risk of having their credits transfer.

  • If I attend Bluefield State College and wish to transfer to another institution, will my credits transfer?
    Bluefield State College is Regionally Accredited with programs in Engineering Technology, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Education and Business which hold program specific accreditations in their major fields. The decision of how your credit will transfer to another institution will be made by that institution.
