A maximum of six credit hours of acceptable graduate credit may be transferred into a graduate degree program. Course work taken prior to being admitted to a program in the School of Education and not applied to another degree may be applied for transfer. This includes course work taken at VCU.
Course work submitted for transfer is evaluated by the student’s adviser and the department head. See the Ph.D. in Education program section of this bulletin for information regarding transfer credit for this program.
As a general rule, continuing education courses taken at institutions other than VCU will not be transferred.
Students seeking to earn credit at other institutions after acceptance to a graduate program in the School of Education must receive prior approval from their advisers and the department chair, or the director for the Ph.D. program. See the Graduate School section of this bulletin for further information regarding transfer credit.
