Rosemont College will accept a maximum of 66 transfer credits from a two-year institute and 90 credits from a four-year institute.

Once you have applied to Rosemont and submitted all of your official college transcripts, a preliminary analysis will be made of your previous college credits. This will be mailed with your acceptance letter. A final official confirmation of transfer credit will be completed subsequently by the Rosemont Registrar’s Office.
