Transfer of Credit

A maximum of six semester units of graduate work taken in an accredited graduate program is transferable to Mount Saint Mary’s University provided that:

  • the transfer courses satisfy curriculum requirements at Mount Saint Mary’s University and a grade of B or better was earned;
  • the courses are transferred after the student has been accepted into the program and prior to the last semester of graduate study (transfer credit forms are available in the Graduate Office);
  • correspondence and extension courses are not transferable;
  • courses were taken within seven years of the date on which the student was accepted in a Mount Saint Mary’s University graduate program.

Once admitted to a graduate program students are expected to pursue study only at Mount Saint Mary’s University.
