Transfer of Credit Policies

Baker College credits are accepted at most colleges and universities. The number of credits accepted depends upon the compatibility of the Baker College courses with the requirements for the degree sought. Students should contact the institution to which they intend to transfer for information on that institution's transfer credit policy. Non-traditional credit (experiential, articulation, etc.) may not be transferable to other colleges.

The Baker College Academic Office evaluates transfer credits from another college or university on a case-by-case basis. We evaluate each official academic transcript to determine if the transfer credit qualifies as part of the student's program step plan at Baker College. If the credit qualifies, the student is not required to take that class at Baker College. For more information, contact the AdmissionsDepartment.

Emergency Response and Evacuation

Students

In case of fire, an alarm will sound and students will be asked to vacate the building promptly, proceeding to predefined evacuation locations on campus. Emergency evacuation information and routes for leaving the building are posted in each classroom. During a fire evacuation elevators will not work. Students must use the stairs. Window exits should not be used unless a doorway path is inaccessible. In other emergency situations, the highest ranking staff member available will inform students of the situation and how to respond to it.

Staff

Each employee receives emergency response training and has received emergency response information from Campus Safety that details procedures for various types of emergencies. These procedures are also available in the Baker College Catalog and Student Handbook.

Military Shopping Sheet

The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a standardized form that was developed by the U.S. Department of Education to provide military students, veterans, and their families with an easy to read form that enables them to compare institutions in terms of grant and scholarship amounts, net costs, graduation rates, loan default rates, median borrowing, and estimated monthly loan payments after graduation.

To access the shopping sheet, please visit our online Cost Estimator. Based on your responses to a series of questions, Baker College can determine the cost information and estimated financial aid for your family. At the end you will be able to view and print the shopping sheet.

Readmission Requirements for Servicemembers

If you are a servicemember who wants to re-enroll into Baker College after active duty, contact the Veteran representative on the campus you attended. The Veteran representative will review and explain the Baker College readmission policy and procedures.

Net Price Calculator

The net price calculator helps you estimate the net price of education. The results the calculator provides are an estimate and do not represent a final award determination or final net price.

The calculator asks a series of questions to determine dependency status, estimated cost of attendance, and approximate expected family contribution. Based on the responses provided, the calculator estimates an average cost of attendance that other students, similar to you, paid in the given year.

The estimated financial aid is based on being a first-time, full-time degree- or certificate-seeking undergraduate student. This is a student attending a postsecondary school for the first time and enrolled for 12 or more credits each quarter. 

As you compare colleges, keep in mind that the estimated financial aid includes Federal, State, and institutional aid; it does not take into account any third-party funding, private grants, scholarships, or loan aid that may be available to students.

You can access the Net Price Calculator online.
