Parsons Paris ~ School Of Art + Design

All students are required to submit official transcripts to the Admissions Office for evaluation when applying to the school. Once admitted, students may have their first semester of attendance at Parsons Paris to submit outstanding official transcripts to the Registrar for evaluation for possible transfer credit. No transcripts submitted after the end of a student's first semester of attendance will be considered for transfer credit. All transcripts submitted must be original or certified copies in order to be accepted. In addition, transcripts from schools that were not indicated on the application for admission will not be reviewed.

A grade of "C" or better must be earned to receive transfer credit. Granting of transfer credit is contingent upon an applicant's capacity to maintain the same satisfactory performance level by which the student was admitted. During the first semester of attendance, students should direct their questions about transfer credit to the Registrar.

NO credit will be granted for “life experience”

Applicants who would like to transfer academic credits earned at non-English Language institutions are also required to have their transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES). A course-by-course evaluation report must be prepared for each transcript. Please start the evaluation process as early as possible, including the submission of all required documents to WES in order to ensure the timely completion of the evaluation report. To contact WES go to instruct WES to send the report to the Parsons Paris Admissions Office.

Students who have earned a French or International Baccalaureate, a German Abitur, or who have passed A-Levels, US Advanced Placement Exams, or equivalent university qualifying examinations, will be considered to receive appropriate transfer credits for those academic credentials. Applicants must submit official documentation in the original language and certified translations into English in order to receive credit.

Transfer credit for studio courses will be granted only for courses whose content is similar to that of Parsons Paris and after presentation of official transcripts and portfolio material demonstrating proficiency in the subject areas for which credit is sought. Credit will only be granted in 12 credit (equivalent semester) blocks.

Parsons Paris awards a maximum of 42 Critical Studies (including art history) credits for courses completed elsewhere, and which correspond to Critical Studies requirements.

The transfer credit evaluation is completed and transfers credit granted only after an applicant has been accepted and has submitted all final transcripts from other schools to Parsons Paris. Accepted applicants receive notification of transfer credit prior to Registration.
