Transferring Credits

Giving credit where credit is due.

Marlboro accepts transfer credits for courses taken at an accredited college or university if the courses are comparable in content, nature, and intensity to courses offered at Marlboro College and have a grade of C- (1.67) or better.

After an applicant has been admitted, the Registrar will review previous college transcripts and notify the applicant regarding which credits will transfer. Further questions can be addressed to the Registrar’s Office at or (802) 251-7609.

Credit for Examinations

Marlboro may grant up to 24 credits in total for acceptable performance on the following standardized exams:

Advanced Placement

We’ll grant up to four credits per exam for Advanced Placement examinations (AP) with a score of 4 or 5. No more than 16 credits in total may be granted by Marlboro College for acceptable levels of performance on approved AP exams. AP credits are generally awarded during the Sophomore 2 semester.

International Baccalaureate

We’ll grant up to eight credits for higher level (HL) examinations passed with scores of 5, 6, or 7 from the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.

Transferring Study Abroad Credit

Students who have studied abroad must present official documentation to the Admissions Office (incoming students) or the Registrar’s Office (current students) in order for credits to transfer to Marlboro. All credentials, except for exceptions listed below, must be evaluated by an official evaluation organization; that organization will then submit its report to Marlboro College. The costs of the evaluation and postage are borne by the student. Exceptions to this policy include official transcripts in English bearing American grading and credit standards (e.g., American colleges and study abroad programs through American colleges) and official transcripts in English using ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) standards.

Students may find evaluation services online. Some standard organizations, with their websites, are listed below. Students should request “course-by-course” service. Current prices are listed below (most include standard postage, with rush service additional).

Please contact the Registrar’s office for information about deadlines for transferring credit.
