All courses at Pine Manor College follow the Federal Regulations regarding the award of credits: in a 15 week semester, 1 credit-hour requires one hour of direct instructional engagement (usually class meeting time), and the expectation of work outside of the classroom equivalent to at least two additional hours. Most courses at Pine Manor College are awarded four credits – therefore they meet for four hours of instructional engagement each week, and have work expectations of eight additional hours outside of class. Courses that meet less frequently are awarded fewer credits; courses that have laboratory periods, or extensive internship experiences are awarded more than four credits. Any variation is noted in the description for each course.
* The most updated course information is found on the Student and Faculty portals or by contacting the Registrar’s Office.

Transfer credit is evaluated by the Registrar only for courses in which a grade of “C” or better has been earned. Evaluation will be on a course by course equivalency as determined by the Registrar. Grades earned at other colleges do not affect a student’s cumulative GPA.
An official transcript and course description must be submitted to the Registrar for approval at least six months prior to the expected date of receipt of an A.A., A.S., or B.A. degree.
Equitable credit for military experience is awarded in accordance with the American Council on Education’s guidelines for registrars.
A student entering with previous college credits may apply up to 32 semester hours of credit towards the A.A. or A.S. degree, or up to 96 semester hours towards the B.A. degree. The faculty members in each academic department determine whether courses taken ten years ago or longer may fill major requirements or be transferred in as elective credit.
(For additional information on credits see Academic Policies.)
