  • Official Transcripts from all college/s and universities previously attended.

My application is submitted! What’s next?

Once your application file is complete, Admission representatives will review your application file for consideration. Once an admission decision is ready, you will be notified via email to review the decision on your MyBerry portal. Should you be officially admitted to Berry, you will be given the option to accept or decline your spot and will work with our Registrar’s Office to determine course placement and onboarding next steps.

Important Information for 2nd Degree Seeking Applicants.

All official college transcripts must be provided to Berry before admission consideration and course credit evaluation.

It is important to note that students must take a minimum of 62 credit hours at Berry College to earn a second degree. While some courses from previous college work may transfer to Berry, it is very possible courses may need to be retaken which may result in students being required to take more than the minimum 62 credit hour requirement that is necessary to obtain a Berry degree.

There are no financial aid opportunities available to support students pursuing a second degree with Berry College. Enrollment fees and all other payments associated with enrolling at Berry are the student’s responsibility to pay.
