Off Campus Credit--Appearance on Transcript

How will courses taken off campus appear on my Bowdoin transcript?

Many students wonder how the coursework that they took abroad or during the summer will appear on the Bowdoin transcript.

Courses taught on the Bowdoin College campus are listed on the transcript in this manner:

Fall 2007 4.00
GER 101     ELEMENTARY GERMAN I B 1.00
HIST 261 ASIAN 256   MODERN SOUTH ASIA
C 1.00
ECON 308     INTERNATIONAL TRADE
A 1.00
ES 276 GEO 276   WATERSHED HYDROLOGY A 1.00


In the case of courses taken through an approved Off-Campus Study program, such as SIT-Australia, through 12-College Exchange, or during the summer, the name of the institution and the total number of credits accepted for transfer are listed. It looks like this:

Fall 2007
Study Away Program at: Oxford University 4.00


or

Summer 2007
Transferred credit from: Indiana University 0.75


No course titles or grades are listed on an official Bowdoin transcript for courses earned off campus. (Bearings will list courses with "Transfer Credit received" for advising purposes only.)

If you have any questions regarding transfer of credit generally or other issues relating to the Bowdoin transcript, please contact Julie Bedard, Associate Registrar.
