Transfer of Graduate Credit

Transfer of Graduate Credit Policy

Students desiring to transfer from another college and be admitted to a graduate degree program at Stevenson University must submit official transcripts of all previous college records. College-level coursework completed outside of the United States must be evaluated by World Education Services (WES). An official WES transcript is required. Stevenson University will accept a maximum of six graduate transfer credits from a regionally accredited four-year institution. A matriculated student must complete the last 30 credits of their degree at Stevenson University.

The courses and credits completed with a grade of "B" or better at other regionally accredited institutions are generally transferable to Stevenson. Transfer credit is awarded at the discretion and final approval of the appropriate Program Coordinator/Associate Dean. All transferable courses must be comparable to courses offered at this University. Courses that do not transfer include developmental/remedial, personal development, orientation courses and credit given for portfolio work. Regardless of the number of transfer credits accepted, students must still complete the academic program requirements as shown in the Stevenson University Catalog and on the student's degree audit. Shortly following acceptance, evaluated transfer credit may be viewed through WebXpress.

Transfer applicants should have left the sending institution in good standing. Grades and grade point averages earned at another institution do not transfer. The transferred credits apply toward graduation, but the grade points are not used in calculating the academic average required for graduation. Students seeking information on the transferability of credits may contact the Stevenson University Online Academic Evaluator or an Enrollment Counselor.

Transfer of Graduate Credit Process

  • Following admission to a graduate program, the student will need to complete the Graduate Credit Transfer Evaluation form and must provide a course syllabus and/or course description for each course.
  • Admitted students who have submitted official transcripts from all previous institutions, will have their transfer credit evaluation completed within 7-10 business days following acceptance. Transfer credit is awarded at the discretion and final approval of the appropriate Program Coordinator/Associate Dean.
  • Students will be notified that the evaluation is completed by the Stevenson University Online Admissions Office via email, and will receive a copy of the evaluation upon meeting with their Student Success Coach.
  • An appointment will be set up with the Student Success Coach, who will review the degree audit and transcript evaluation.
