Transfer Credits

Creighton University Graduate School Policy

Credit earned with grades "A" or "B" at other accredited graduate institutions may be considered for transfer at the time a studentís plan of study is constructed. The acceptance of credit offered for transfer will be determined by the Graduate Dean upon recommendation of the program director.

Ordinarily, no more than six transfer credits will be applicable toward a masterís degree, nor will more than thirty transfer credits offered by the recipient of a masterís degree from another institution be applicable to doctoral studies at Creighton.

Prerequisite undergraduate courses will be accepted in the plan of study (but not count as degree credit) provided they are taken from fully-accredited undergraduate colleges. Allowance of credit toward a graduate degree for courses taken as a Special Student (non-degree status) in the Graduate School may not exceed nine semester hours, except in the case of hours earned in pre-approved certificate programs.

Steps to request credit transfer:

1. Fill out the Request for Transfer Credit form - you may fill in the form electronically. Then print the form.

2. Send the form (email, fax or mail) to us and attach a syllabus and transcript for each requested course.

3. The program director will evaluate your request and will then send these documents to the Graduate School, denoting her recommendations.

4. Following the program director's recommendations, the Graduate School will grant or deny the transfer credit request. Transfer credit that is approved will be reflected on the studentís transcript; however, the credits will not be calculated in the studentís grade point average.

5. The Graduate School will send the student a letter/notification, outlining the action taken, with a copy of the letter going to the program director.
