Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

Transfer Students

Many students who enter into the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program at Georgetown University transfer directly from a different college. In order to make your transfer process as smooth as possible, we accept up to 64 transfer credits so you can pick up where you left off and build upon your previous academic experience.

Here, Dante Bernardi, an alumnus of the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program, describes his experience transferring from Northern Virginia Community College to Georgetown University:

Articulation Agreements

Georgetown SCS is proud to have articulation agreements with Northern Virginia Community College, Montgomery College, and Prince George's Community College. Students who complete an associate’s degree at any of these institutions—with a 3.0 or higher GPA—will be reviewed for guaranteed admission into the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program.

Transfer Credits

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program honors up to 64 transfer credits for completed courses with a minimum C grade from regionally accredited institutions. Transfer credit evaluations are conducted on a case-by-case, individual basis by the program. Factors considered when reviewing transfer credit include, but are not limited to, accreditation, timeliness of content (computer science and technology courses no older than 10 years), and overall academic relevance within the program. In addition, CLEP exam credit, AP exam credit (grade of 4-5), and all Joint Services Transcripts will be considered for transfer.

Students applying to the program who have previously attended another Georgetown University undergraduate program should be aware that their entire undergraduate academic record will be reflected on their transcript. This means that all courses, grades, and credits earned at Georgetown University will be factored into the cumulative GPA and credit totals, without exception. While all previously completed undergraduate coursework will be reflected on the transcript and will be applied towards the cumulative GPA and credit totals, students are still responsible for completing all of the program requirements, including a minimum of 57 credits within the program and all required courses.

Phi Theta Kappa

For the past several years, our Bachelor's completion program has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s Transfer Honor Roll, which recognizes excellence in the development and support of dynamic and innovative transfer pathways for community college transfer students. Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders.
