Transfer Student Policies and Procedures
Acceptance of transfer credits from approved institutions is often dependent on the relevance of the work to the degree program you are pursuing at Drexel. Coursework that lies outside the scope of your degree program is not necessarily applicable for degree credit. You should confer with your program of study department at an early date to ensure that no misunderstanding occurs with regard to the use of transfer credits in your degree plans.
Graduate transfer credits must be approved by the Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Studies and may be subject to the following restrictions:
- At least 30 graduate term credits (equivalent to 20 semester credits) of any master's degree program must be taken at Drexel.
- All transfer credits must have a grade of B or higher, and your overall average in all prior graduate work must be a minimum of B.
- Transfer graduate credit will not be taken unless it is within the general time limit of seven years prior to the receipt of a degree.
In order to receive transfer credit for courses completed at other institutions you will need to submit an official transcript from all previous institutions to Drexel University.
If you take a course off-campus and would like to have it approved you should submit a syllabus to your Drexel advisor. If the course can be included in the plan of study, you may take the course off-campus and submit a copy of the transcript to the advisor once again for final approval. No credit will be allowed for correspondence or extension work.
