Transfer Credit

A student may transfer a maximum of 9 credit hours of graduate course work completed at another institution. Credit will be accepted for course work that forms a related part of the student's total Fredonia graduate program. Students are advised to secure prior approval before registering for credit courses at other colleges or universities; credit may also be awarded for course work completed without prior approval.

The request for transfer credit approval form is available at the following link: The form must include the course catalog number and title, and be accompanied by a description of each course proposed for transfer credit. Credit toward the degree will be given only for courses in which the student earns grades of A or B. Transfer credit will not be included in the computation of the graduate student's average. Courses transferred into a degree program cannot be more than five years old by the time the degree requirements are completed, unless an extension has been granted by the Associate Provost for Graduate Studies.
