Transfer Credit

Upon admission to degree candidacy, a student may submit up to six (6) semester credits (12 credits in MSC) of appropriate graduate coursework with grades of “B” (3.0) or better from accredited graduate schools (as identified below) to satisfy degree requirements. The Program Coordinator, upon the advice of the Faculty Advisor, may accept transfer credits from an official transcript reflecting those credits. Acceptability of transfer credit rests on its relevance to the course of study being pursued and on the date of the instruction. Coursework older than six (6) years at the time of graduation may not be submitted for transfer credit. Students may petition to transfer three (3) additional credits if degree completion within six years is interrupted by military commitments.
