Can transfer credits from another college/university apply toward program requirements?
In general, students complete the full set of courses outlined in the program. It is possible to transfer a limited number of graduate credits. However, this credit must meet the following criteria:
- Course must be a regular graduate course with a graduate course number (not professional development or college credit through an Educational Agency or conference).
- Course must be taken by the student in graduate status, and the official transcript must show a grade of B- or better earned.
- Course must be applicable as a graduate requirement at the institution where it is taken.
- Course must be taught by regular graduate faculty.
- Course must meet the UNI seven-year recency requirement.
- Academic departments will determine whether or not they wish to accept transfer credit even if it meets the above requirements. These criteria were established to prevent credits not intended for use toward graduate degrees (i.e., Area Education Agency/professional development credits) from being used to meet UNI degree program requirements.
- Transfer credits will not be accepted that are based in education theory, pedagogy and/or practice. They must be social science content.
Please check with the program coordinator about specific situations and Transfer Evaluation forms.
