Transferring graduate credit

Students may request to transfer graduate credit from courses taken at another institution within the past seven years.

Students must first petition the appropriate graduate program coordinator. Petitions must include an official course description from the transferring college catalog and course syllabus.

Petitions for consideration of transfer credit must be made prior to the successful completion of 12 hours of graduate coursework at Columbia College. A maximum of nine semester hours, with grades of "B" or higher, may be transferred. In all instances, the culminating experience must be completed at Columbia College.

Students who are admitted to a Columbia College graduate program and who wish to take courses at another college or university while pursuing a graduate degree at Columbia College must first obtain written permission for the transfer of these courses from the appropriate graduate program coordinator.

Full admission to a graduate program must be secured before graduate transfer credit will be considered.
