*If a student has a prior degree, the Writing Requirement may be waived. Students will need to meet the minimum general education credit requirement to obtain a Bellin College degree.

If an applicant has at least 29 acceptable credits and is missing the Expository Writing course they will be allowed to enter the Sophomore Transfer Option with a stipulation that the Expository Writing course be completed (with a C or higher) before the start of their Junior year.

A credit evaluation will assist in determining eligibility for this option. A Bellin College Admissions Counselor will assist in outlining a plan to fulfill the remaining general education credits that are required.

The Credit Evaluation and GPA calculation will include any course taken that would meet the following criteria:
  1. All courses that meet a required general education course will be considered. Required general education courses include:  Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Psychology, Human Development, Writing, Communication, Human Diversity, Statistics, Business, Algebra, and Philosophy/Ethics.
  2. Elective Courses that meet a grade of ā€œCā€ or above will be included. Elective courses include:  Social Sciences, Humanities, General and Upper Level electives.

Official admission is contingent upon receipt of any official transcripts (If courses are in progress at the time of application), and completion of the health requirements prior to enrollment. (Date will be communicated).
