Domestic Study

Students may receive credit for a semester away at an accredited, four-year institution in the U.S.  (Please note that concurrent with Amherst policy, no credit is awarded for summer programs.)  You must take a full schedule of liberal arts courses that do not duplicate previous coursework taken, and you must receive a C or better for the credit to transfer.  Failure to transfer in a full semester's worth of credit may prevent your readmission to Amherst.

Domestic Study or Study Abroad

Students who qualify for financial aid at Amherst College may apply their aid to study at another institution within the United States or abroad, subject to the following conditions:

Your proposed coursework must be approved and considered full-time and equal to a full semester's worth of credit toward your degree at Amherst College as determined by the Registrar of Amherst College.
