Graduate Transfer Credit Policy
Following evaluation by the Academic Director and approval by the applicable Dean or designee, students may receive transfer credit for grades of “B” or better from regionally accredited institutions. The determination of transfer credits will be based, in part, on the compatibility with courses in the program and is limited to 12 credits. Students must be fully admitted to the program to be eligible to transfer credit.
Students must submit an official transcript and course descriptions. Once matriculated, all coursework is expected to be completed at the University.
Courses taken at Franklin Pierce University take precedence over transfer courses. In the event that the student has an over-abundance of transfer credits, credits that apply to one’s degree requirements will be posted first while nonessential credits will be held separately. If the student changes programs, the student’s transfer credits may be adjusted to reflect the new program(s).
When the student has a break of more than 12 consecutive months, the student’s transfer credits will be reevaluated based upon current program requirements and policies.
