Visit UB for a personal transfer consultation.

Important Transfer Considerations:

  • You should apply in advance of the date of the term you plan to begin your studies. This will enable you to receive a timely evaluation of your transfer credits, appropriate academic advisement and program planning.
  • You must have earned at least a “C” average (2.0 GPA) for all work attempted and be in good academic standing at the previously attended institution to be considered for regular admission.
  • All courses taken at the previously institution must be 100 level or higher to transfer over.
  • Dental Hygiene, Biology, Health Sciences, all Business majors and Computer Science and Engineering require a 2.5 cumulative grade point average.
  • Your acceptance is contingent upon the receipt of all final official transcripts.
  • You are required to complete your last thirty semester hours at the University of Bridgeport and meet course requirements as described in each program to be eligible for a degree. A maximum of 66 credits may be awarded from two-year colleges and 90 credits from accredited four-year institutions.
  • An applicant who has attempted 12 or more semester hours at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution is considered a transfer applicant.

Articulation Agreements

All transfer students should develop an education plan with their community college counselor. To encourage transfers within Connecticut, the University of Bridgeport is continuing to develop degree-specific transfer articulation agreements and guides with regionally accredited schools to assist transfer students in the development of their education plans.

The following are UB’s current articulation (transfer) agreements, which outline the courses students should take in order to complete an Associate Degree at their current institution and to transfer into specific major(s) at UB.

  • Gateway Community College
  • Housatonic Community College
  • Norwalk Community College
  • Naugatuck Valley Community College
  • Middlesex Community College
  • Quinebaug Community College
  • Northwestern Community College
  • Capital Community College

Students wishing to plan their Associate Degree programs to ensure meeting prerequisites for upper division courses at UB are encouraged to communicate early with a Transfer Counselor or Academic Advisor at UB to secure specific information about transfer credits and to ensure coursework will transfer. Transfer students receive academic credit for most college level courses as long as they receive a grade of C or better in the course. A maximum of sixty six (66) credits will be accepted for transfer from a community college.
