Transferring Credits from Another Institution
Students registered in a master’s program may be permitted to take up to 12 credits or up to 40% of the total number of credits needed for degree completion at another institution. These credits cannot have been counted toward the completion of another credential nor have been used to upgrade an applicant’s academic standing to justify admission. Only courses in which at least a “B” standing (or 74%) is obtained will be considered for transfer. The courses must have been taken within the last five years and not utilized for any other credential.
Requests for transfer credit must be accompanied by a letter from the home graduate program addressed to the Dean of Graduate Students. The letter must provide an academic justification for allowing the transfer credit on a course by course basis. In addition, the student must provide official transcripts for verification.
