Transfer Entry Level
A General Education Entry/Transfer level is assigned at the time of entry to Bethel and determines which General Education requirements a student must fulfill and the number of interims that must be completed. The General Education Entry/Transfer level will not be changed from the original level assigned unless a student leaves Bethel and returns after a period of two or more years, during which they earned credits at another accredited college or university and did not complete any courses at Bethel.
Students admitted to Bethel who already have a Bachelor’s degree from another institution and who are attending Bethel to obtain a second Bachelor’s degree in a major different from their previously earned Bachelor’s degree will enter Bethel as a Transfer Level 7. (Students who already have a Bethel Bachelor’s degree and who are completing a second degree or major are considered to have met all General Education requirements. They need only meet the requirements for the major, including the major residency requirement.)
