Transfer Student or Adult Learner?
You might be wondering if you are a transfer student or an adult learner. That depends on the type of learning and experience you have when you come to Lesley University.
Adult learners frequently juggle multiple roles and need a flexible schedule. They have transfer credits from one or more colleges, and as well as college-level learning from work and experience. Sound like you? We can help you receive credit for your prior learning and help you complete your bachelor's degree.
At Lesley, we accept up to 90 credits. So, whether you are a transfer student or adult learner, we'll help you maximize the credits that you bring in from other colleges. Log in to Transferology, add the courses you've taken, and see how they'll transfer here.
