Make Your Education Work For You
Transferring to Beal University
You may be looking to transfer to Beal University from a technical institute or from another university.
Beal University may grant credit for previous training from another school. Students applying for advanced credit because of previous training will be evaluated by our admissions department. The student will also have to submit an official transcript from their previous school documenting their hours and grades.
Any student who wants to submit transcripts from a foreign country for consideration of credit transfer is required to provide a translation of those transcripts performed by a certified academic translator.
Transfer Credits Earned at Career and Technical Education Centers (CTE)
Beal University partners with the Career and Technical Education Centers (CTEs) high schools in Maine to provide students a pathway to post-secondary education. Students have the opportunity to earn credits while in high school/CTEs to transfer into Beal University’s programs. Credit may be awarded to qualified applicants for all or some courses that they have completed. For more information, please contact the Beal University Admissions Office.
Transfer Credits Earned in High School Through Advanced Placement Courses
Beal University participates in the Advanced Placement Program administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. Students who demonstrate superior performance in the Advanced Placement Examination will be awarded Advanced Placement credit. See the Advanced Placement Equivalency Chart for more specific information concerning the course equivalents.
Beal may award college credit and placement with your AP score before you even enroll! Earning credit or placement can save you time and money to graduate early.
To receive college credit for your AP scores, you must request CollegeBoard to send the official AP score report to Beal University.
