Transfer Credit Policy


The following rules govern transferring off-campus credit towards computer science major/minor requirements:

  1. A maximum of two courses may be applied towards the CS Major.
  2. A maximum of one course may be applied towards the CS Minor.
  3. A maximum of two courses (across both Math and CS) may be applied towards the Math/CS Interdisciplinary Major.
  4. Online-only courses are normally not eligible for credit.

This policy applies to all non-Bowdoin courses, including all of the following:

  • Study abroad courses
  • Summer courses
  • Courses taken during the academic year at another institution

In all cases, courses must receive approval from a member of the department in order to count towards major/minor requirements. For study abroad courses, more details may be found at the Study Abroad page.
