Transfer of Credit

Graduate courses taken at another regionally accredited institution, less than ten calendar years prior to the expected graduation year, may be transferred from that institution and applied toward the masters degree at Southwestern provided:

  1. The grade earned in each course accepted for transfer is at least B (3.00).

  2. The courses are comparable to required courses for a graduate degree at Southwestern.

  3. The credits to be transferred do not exceed nine semester hours.

Grades earned in transfer courses are included in the computation of the grade-point average. Such courses are identified and approved by the Registrar during the first semester of the student's residence. An official transcript listing transfer courses must be on file in the Office Records.
