How many credits can I transfer into Simmons?
Simmons College allows students to transfer in up to 80 credits. These credits may be from other institutions.

If you are not transferring in 80 credits and you bring with you professional and/or volunteer experience, you may be able to earn additional college credits through the Credit for Prior Learning Program, which offers an opportunity to receive credit for knowledge gained through life experience.
