Transfer Credits

Transfer credits are not done automatically for graduate-level courses. If you feel you have completed a course that is equivalent, you will be required to submit a course syllabus for each course. Courses to be considered must be taken within the previous 5 years from a regionally accredited institution, and you must have earned a “B” or better in the course.

All requests must be approved by the respective department chair. An Admissions Coordinator can answer any additional questions you have about transferring credits.
