Transfer Credit Policy
Students who have completed graduate coursework at an accredited institution of higher education may request an evaluation of up to six credits for transfer into a graduate degree program at Curry College. For a graduate course to be considered for transfer credit, it must have been completed prior to matriculation into a Curry graduate program and completed within the previous five years. Evaluation of courses for transfer credit will be based on their content, applicability, and comparability relative to the graduate program requirements. Transfer credit will be considered for only those courses where a grade of B- or better was earned. The Graduate Program Director has final determination regarding the eligibility and award of all transfer credit requests, and students are advised to speak with the respective graduate program director regarding a transfer credit request.
To apply for transfer credit, a student should obtain a Transfer Request form from the Graduate Studies Office and return the completed form along with the official college transcript, course description and syllabus from the appropriate college catalog. To obtain a preliminary evaluation, students may apply for transfer credit with an unofficial transcript. However, prior to the official award of transfer credit, official transcripts must be mailed directly from the sending institution and reviewed.
