My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“Anytime students are talking with their families about what they're learning, that really pleases me.”
Humanities Assistant Professor Margaret Wiley

175th Celebration

In 2012 the college celebrated 175 years as an institution of teaching and learning. Visit the 175th website for more information and to view photos of the events.

Matriculated students who have completed work at other accredited post-secondary institutions may be eligible to receive transfer credit. Students must submit an official transcript and course descriptions for all work completed.

Students with an associate degree from an accredited institution and a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher will receive full credit for all courses taken and passed at the other college, provided that the degree has liberal education requirements similar to those at Colby-Sawyer. The work of students who have an associate degree with dissimilar or no liberal education requirements, do not have an associate degree, or do not have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher, will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. In such cases, credit is given for courses which have been completed with grades of C or above which are pertinent to the educational mission of Colby-Sawyer and thus have course equivalents here. The registrar has the responsibility of making the final determination regarding transferability of individual courses. Grades earned in courses taken before matriculation at Colby-Sawyer will not be included when computing the cumulative grade point average. Transfer students should note that at least one-half of the prescribed credits for a Colby-Sawyer degree, including the final 30 credit hours, must be sponsored by Colby-Sawyer, whether taken on- or off-campus
