Transfer Credit Policy
Policy On Credit For Courses Taken Elsewhere
At the discretion of the MBA Admissions Committee, up to two courses may be transferred,. Courses should have been completed within the past five years and have earned a grade of a "B-" or better. Courses from graduate programs other than an MBA program are not transferable. Once a student is matriculated at Curry College, no transfer credit will be allowed.
The typical circumstance for transfer credit of MBA coursework is reserved for those students who began an MBA program at another school but for various reasons, such as employment transfer to the Boston area, will matriculate at Curry College.
To have coursework reviewed for transfer credit, students must submit all original syllabi and the Admissions Committee may request further information. Transfer credit is awarded at the discretion of the MBA Admissions Committee and all decisions are final.
