Application for Admission
To be considered for admission to Eastern Nazarene College as a Transfer Student, students must submit the following materials:
- Online Application for Admission
This is the first step in the application process at Eastern Nazarene College. Students must complete the free online application form and submit it to the Office of Admission.
- College Transcripts
Students must arrange to have official signed and sealed transcripts from all post-secondary institutions previously attended sent directly to the Office of Admission at Eastern Nazarene College. The transcript must show course grades, as well as the student’s cumulative GPA. If currently enrolled in courses at the time of application, a final transcript must be forwarded immediately after completion of the term or semester. If the student attends or has attended a university outside the U.S. or Canada, transcripts must first be sent to either WES or AACRAO for a full course-by-course transcript evaluation. Each transcript will be reviewed for transferability of credits. High school students have completed less than one full semester (at least 12 credit hours) should apply as Freshman Admission.
Transcript Evaluation Process
The Office of the Registrar at Eastern Nazarene College evaluates transfer students’ transcripts. Transfer credit are generally granted for courses taken at an accredited institution of higher education, provided such work is appropriate to degree requirements at Eastern Nazarene College, and the student received a minimum grade of C-. This, however, does not guarantee that the course transferred will fulfill a major requirement. Pass/fail courses are not transferable without official verification that a minimum passing grade of a C was earned.
Transcripts should be sent to:
Eastern Nazarene College
Office of Admission
23 East Elm Avenue
Quincy, MA 02170
Official electronic transcripts may also be requested through the registrar’s office at all previous institutions attended.
