Transfer Credit

Students may transfer up to 12 credits into master’s programs and up to 3 credits into advanced certificate programs. To be eligible for consideration, these credits must be:

  • graduate level
  • from a regionally accredited college or university
  • a final grade of B or better
  • related to the student’s program/content area
  • no more than seven years old at the time of the student’s admission to the graduate program.

A student begins the transfer request process by having an official transcript and course syllabus of all credit he/she wishes to be considered sent to the School for Graduate Studies.

  • For master’s programs that require a formal degree program (DP), the student discusses transfer credit during degree planning with his/her advisor. Proposed transfer credit is listed on the DP.
  • For master’s programs that do not require a DP, the student discusses transfer credit with his/her advisor. Proposed transfer credit is listed on the appropriate transfer credit request form.
  • For advanced certificate programs, the student discusses transfer credit with his/her advisor. Proposed transfer credit is listed on the appropriate transfer credit request form.
