Converse II offers adult students, ages 24 or older, a Converse education at a discounted rate. We want to make your entrance into college as comfortable as possible – that’s why we provide orientation sessions, in-depth academic advising, and a streamlined application process to prepare you for your first day at Converse. Converse II is more than an experience. It’s the gateway to your future.
Programs and Courses
Converse II students are fully integrated and receive the same high-quality education as our traditional undergraduate students. Outstanding features of the program are a reduced tuition rate, simplified application procedure, no SAT or entrance test scores required, career counseling, and individualized academic advisement. The Converse II experience is an integral part of Converse College—the teaching faculty and academic requirements for the degree are the same for both traditional-aged and Converse II students.

We want you to get the most from your experience. When you submit your official transcripts as part of the application process, we’ll review them to see which courses we can apply to your degree progress at Converse. Not all courses will transfer, but those in which you earned a C- or higher and which are equivalent to courses offered at Converse can often be counted for non-GPA credit through Converse II.
Review and Articulation Agreements
If you’d like to know more about credit transfer prior to sending your official transcripts, you can email copies of unofficial transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll give you guidance on which courses will transfer and how that may affect the coursework you need to complete your degree.
Converse has also partnered with a number of colleges and universities to setup agreements of credit transfer. If you’d like more information, review the PDFs below to see how your credits can transfer.

- Articulation Agreement for Spartanburg Methodist College
You can also use the worksheets to see how the agreements above transfer credit toward Converse’s General Education Program (GEP) that is required of all majors.

Converse will review coursework for transfer from institutions which are actively accredited by agencies recognized by the Department of Education. Coursework must be of at least equal academic rigor and cover sufficiently similar topics to be considered for transfer, and a grade of a C- or higher must have been achieved. Syllabi, course catalogs, or other documentation may be necessary and must be supplied by the student on request to make the appropriate determination of credit articulation. For more information, please consult the current academic catalog.
