Transfer.

Hi all, I just received my Brown letter today- I'm a transfer from Vassar, and I'm pretty sure I'll be attending Brown in the spring of '09 (which is not the same as "in the fall" but I really don't think I should be picky about that sort of thing). I was looking at my credit evaluation, though, and while I applied as a junior I only received credit for 10 of the 12 classes I'd taken at Vassar, which means that even if I got credit for all four classes I took this semester I'd only be entering as a sophomore of sorts. Does anyone know how close the initial transfer credit evaluation is to reality? Will I be able to convince someone at Brown to grant me credit that wasn't initially thought to be transferable?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Once you get here, you can talk to people in the department of the credit you want transferred and see if they'll agree to accept it. In my experience everyone is pretty easy-going here, and you will probably be able to do this. I was on the other side of the fence - I only wanted 8 of my credits to be counted so I could have an extra year here and time to study abroad!

Congrats, and welcome to Brown! Let me know if you have any other questions about Brown or Providence.

Another resource is the Brown web site
There is a lot of contact info available there and you might be able to connect with a dean or someone else who could assist you.

Hope you enjoy Brown :)

I have no idea, actually. The form is very short, with the number of credits and the number of semesters of advanced standing I'd receive. I'll be emailing relevant Deans tomorrow, I guess…
