Transfer of Credit

Students who wish to use transfer credits toward any of the graduate programs must make this request at the time of the initial application. The amount of graduate credit transferable into a Master’s degree program from other accredited institutions is limited to nine-semester credits.

All transfer credits must represent satisfactory work (a grade of B or better) at the institution where the work was completed and must be in accordance with a planned program of study. Transfer credits older than 10 years are not accepted toward any graduate program. Courses used to earn a degree for another program are not transferable to any graduate program. Transfer of courses completed after a student is admitted to a graduate program must be approved in advance in writing by the Dean of Graduate Programs. 

Transfer credits are not included in a determination of cumulative GPA’s for graduate students.

Notice:  

  1. The Bridges Graduate School of Cognitive Diversity in Education has not entered into an articulation or transfer agreement with any other college or university.
  2. The institution does not award credit for prior experiential learning and does not use an “Ability to Benefit” exam as an alternative to enrollment.

 

Transfer Credit

There is no automatic transfer of credit toward a graduate degree. The Bridges Graduate School has not entered into an articulation or transfer agreement with any other college or university.  A maximum of 12 graduate-level credit hours of transfer work from an approved regionally or nationally accredited institution may be applied to a degree program upon academic adviser and the approval of the Dean of the Graduate School. The institution reserves the right to allow fewer transfer credits. 

Specific restrictions:

  1. Transfer work must be a coherent part of the required program of study.
  2. Transfer work must be completed within the six-year period immediately preceding the date of graduation.
  3. Only grades of B (3.0) or better are acceptable for transfer. Grades of S (satisfactory) or P (pass) are not acceptable.
  4. Coursework taken to fulfill degree requirements for one degree may not be applied toward another degree.
  5. Official transcripts must be submitted to the Graduate School (in a sealed envelope) from the institution at which the coursework being requested for transfer was completed. The institution must be accredited by an approved regional or national accrediting agency.
  6. Transfer credit requested from institutions using the quarter system will be converted to semester hours using the following equation:

1 quarter-hour = 2/3 (.66) semester hour

2 quarter hours = 1-1/3 (1.33) semester hours

3 quarter hours = 2 semester hours

Transfer credit requests should be presented for consideration at the time the student applies for admission to the graduate school (see Candidacy section) or as soon as the coursework is completed. Approved transfer credit(s) will be included in the graduate student’s academic record.
