A maximum of nine semester hours of graduate credit earned at another institution may be accepted toward meeting requirements for the graduate program provided:
- The credit has been earned at an accredited graduate institution within 10 years of the date on which the graduate program requirements are completed;
- The work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable program at the institution from which transfer is sought;
- The courses to be transferred carry a mark of "B" or better; and
- The courses are approved by the program department chair and/or coordinator and the Associate Vice President, Academic Programs. Approval may be based on the evaluation of an institution using these criteria: length of the instructional term, frequency and length of class sessions, availability of library services, course syllabus and/or statement of requirements, and faculty member's qualifications.
Transfer credits taken during the final semester of a program will delay program completion until official transcripts of the courses have been received in the Graduate Office. To transfer a course, a "course substitution" form must be completed. Transfer credit does not compute in the MSU GPA.
