“I live on the South Shore and had heard positive things about Curry College. The fact that Curry has smaller classes and that the student population in the program tends to be older were the selling points for me.”

Transfer Credit Policy
Students who have completed graduate coursework at an accredited institution of higher education may be able to transfer up to six credits at the graduate level. In the M.Ed. program, these credits must replace similar credits in order to be counted towards any licensure requirements. Courses should have been completed within the previous five years and have earned a grade of a "B-" or better.
To apply for transfer credit, students should obtain a Transfer Request form from the Graduate or Campus offices, and should submit that form with the requested documentation. College transcripts are required, along with syllabi and the course descriptions from the college catalogue. Although an official transcript will be required before transfer credit can be accepted, you may apply using an unofficial transcript to determine whether the courses are appropriate for transfer. The Director must approve all credit transfers.
