Policies and Procedures

Transfer of Credit

A limit of 9 credit hours earned at another regionally accredited or world recognized international institution may be accepted toward degree requirements at UMMC. Outside courses considered a “core course” of the graduate program cannot be transferred for credit. Transfer credit will be awarded only for courses in which a grade of “B” or higher has been earned. Final approval is granted by the program director and the School of Population Health Dean or designee. Furthermore, acceptance of this work does not reduce the residency requirement.

Students in good academic standing may pursue training at another institution for periods up to a total of 12 months; however, credit from another institution is accepted only when it is clearly a relevant part of the student's current program and when its acceptance has been recommended by the Dean of the School of Population Health.
