Credit Transfer

Each semester, Williams-Mystic welcomes students from a wide range of institutions. Our admissions team works with each of these institutions on a case-by-case basis to ensure credits transfer.

As an official program of Williams College, Williams-Mystic is considered the College’s coastal campus. Students who attend Williams-Mystic receive an official transcript from Williams College, which awards them 18 credit hours (for Williams College students, the equivalent of four courses and one winter study).

We suggest converting credits to the following:

  • Semester credits — If you or your institution wishes to convert to semester credits, we suggest considering each of our courses to be the equivalent of 4.5 semester hours or a total of 18 semester-hour credits for the program.

  • Quarter credits — If you or your institution wishes to convert to quarter credits, we suggest considering each of our courses to be the equivalent of 6.75 quarter hours or a total of 27 quarter-hour credits for the program.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact the Admissions Office.
