A course taken at an Eligible Institution will be eligible for transfer credit if it is deemed functionally equivalent to a course offered within the relevant subject matter degree concentration taken by the student.
  • Students who have previously earned credits at an Eligible Institution may receive an evaluation of their transcripts to determine the number of credit hours and required courses for which they will receive transfer credit by submitting a transfer credit request form, with all required supporting documentation. No transfer credit request will be processed without submittal of a written transfer request form.
